According to Fabrizio Romano, Lazio have reached an agreement with Marseille Olympique on the proposed transfer of Matteo Guendouzi.
The contracts have apparently been checked and signed and the Ligue 1 team is to receive €1m in initial loan fees, with Lazio obligated to make the transfer permanent next summer for €12m. There is another €5 million ahead in achievable add-ons, as well as 10% of any future sale, all of which will go to Marseille.
If everything goes according to plan and there are no unforeseen problems, the French midfielder is scheduled to travel to Rome today (Tuesday) for a medical examination.

In 2018, Guendouzi joined Arsenal when the Gunners embarked on a new project under Unai Emery, who replaced Arsene Wenger at the time. However, his tenure with the Emirates ended prematurely for disciplinary reasons. The 24-year-old midfielder played on loan at Hertha Berlin and Marseille before joining the Ligue 1 team full-time last year.
