thumbnail Hello,

Lazio ready to offer Radu a four-year extension to his current 2012 terms...

Lazio have opened dialogue with Romanian left back Stefan Radu with the intention of agreeing a 2016 extension.

The 24-year-old, who joined in 2008, has become a staple at the Olimpico and president Claudio Lotito wants to reward the player's work rate.

Il Corriere dello Sport reports a series of exchanges have taken place between the player's entourage and Lazio.

A deal seems to have drawn closer following the latest round of talks, and Radu's agent is expected in Rome next week.

It's here where they will define an agreement to prolong his current 2012 deal for another four years.

Chelsea were linked with Radu in January, but it seems he is closer to extending with Lazio.
