Lazio have completed the signing of Bosnian left-back Senad Lulic from Swiss side Young Boys for an undisclosed fee, with reports suggesting they will pay around €3 million for his services.

After agreeing to a five-year deal with the Formello-based side, the 25-year-old spoke of his delight on the club's official website, stating: "I am very happy, for me Lazio is a dream, I am at a great club and in a great city like Rome."

Lulic added that he is a versatile player on the left side of the pitch, as well as his belief that the club should be aiming for silverware next season, continuing: "I can play in defence or as a winger further up the pitch, and Lazio will be aiming for the Scudetto and Coppa Italia as these are important competitions. Forza Lazio."

Lulic began his career with Chur 97 before enjoying spells at Bellinzona, Grasshopper and Young Boys.

He is also a Bosnia and Herzegovina international and has been compared to former Lazio defender Aleksandar Kolarov, who joined Manchester City last year.
