Young Colombian striker Brayan Perea is in Rome to undergo a medical with Lazio ahead of a proposed move.
The deal was arranged between the Biancocelesti and Colombian side Deportivo Cali for the 20-year-old in January, but the move will be finalised once the medical is complete.
"Arriving in a big club like Lazio is for me a reason to be happy," he said.
The Coppa Italia winners have moved early to bolster their squad for next season, but it is unclear as to whether Perea will be part of the first-team plans just yet.
"I know I am a young player, but I have to learn many things."
