​Lazio close to signing Chelsea target Romagnoli

Lazio are close to signing Alessio Romagnoli from AC Milan on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old, who was Milan captain as they won the Serie A last season, has been out of favour at the club in recent months.

Romagnoli did not start a league game since the 25th of Februray for the Rossoneri.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport, he has now agreed a contract with Lazio for next season and beyond.

The defender will sign a deal that will earn him close to €3 million per week.

Romagnoli was linked to Premier League side Chelsea, but they may have decided against making a move for the defender.
