As expected, Lazio have announced a flurry of signings including Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Elseid Hysaj and Luka Romero after their transfer embargo was removed.

The club had been barred from making new signings until someone else had been sold to bring in fresh funds.

However, with the clock ticking down, President Claudio Lotito had to take action himself and inject new capital into the club coffers, reported to be at least €10m.

That allowed them to remove the embargo set by the Covisoc financial authority and finally sign players who had been training with Maurizio Sarri for weeks.

Those include Felipe Anderson from West Ham United, Luka Romero from Real Mallorca and free agent Elseid Hysaj, whose contract with Napoli expired in June.

Lazio also formally signed Pedro, who moves from Roma for free, continuing the remaining two years of his contract.

Meanwhile, the club has also sold Sergio Kalaj to Carrarese, Nikolaos Baxevanos to Chindia Targoviste and Mattia Novella to Monopoli Calcio.

The next step is likely to be Toma Basic from Girondins de Bordeaux, with an offer of €10m including bonuses due to be accepted.
