Lazio buy full rights to Candreva, announce imminent Basta deal

17 June 2014 17:54

Lazio have purchased the full rights to Antonio Candreva and announced a deal is set to be completed for Dusan Basta.

Candreva was co-owned by former club Udinese, and had been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus, though Lazio president Claudio Lotito this week ruled out an exit for the Italy international.

The 27-year-old - who has been at Stadio Olimpico since January 2012 - has now been bought outright by the Rome outfit.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Lazio announces that it has resolved in its favour the signing of the player Antonio Candreva."

Candreva is currently in Brazil where he is a member of Italy's FIFA World Cup squad.

When he returns he is likely to be joined by Basta, with Lazio announcing that a deal to bring the 29-year-old from Udinese is imminent.

"The club wishes to confirm that in the next few days we will announce the acquisition of player Dusan Basta," the statement continued.

Lazio - who this week announced Stefano Pioli had replaced Edoardo Reja as head coach - finished ninth in Serie A last season.
