ROME, (AFP) – France striker Djibril Cisse will sign for Lazio from Greek side Panathinaikos on today, according to reports.
Cisse will earn a reported 2.1 million euros a year, while Lazio will pay a fee of six million euros ($8.4 million), according to Italian news agency Ansa.
The player, 29, who was the top scorer in the Greek top flight in each of his two seasons with Panathinaikos, becomes Lazio’s seventh summer recruit.
