The Czech international is set to put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit...
Corriere dello Sport claims that the former Newcastle United defender was preparing to leave the capital just as Lazio returned from their pre-season training camp in Auronzo.
The Czech will undergo a medical on Wednesday, and with the formalities behind him, he will put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the German club. The Aquilotti are set to earn €5 million from the switch - a tidy profit, given Rozehnal only arrived 18 months ago for €3.5m.
Following the stopper's departure, Lazio’s director of football, Igli Tare, is expected to get the ball rolling on an operation to bring in a new, top-level centre-back.
However, given the lack of high-quality defenders on the market, it remains to be seen whether Tare will complete his mission by the close of the window.
