OFFICIAL: Lazio redeem Matteo Guendouzi


Lazio have officially signed Matteo Guendouzi outright after the conditions for his obligation to buy clause were met. The 25-year-old French midfielder joined the Italian side last summer on a season-long loan deal, which included a conditional purchase option valued at approximately €13 million plus up to €5 million in potential add-ons. Guendouzi quickly established himself as a mainstay in the starting lineup under both Maurizio Sarri and his successor Igor Tudor.

Throughout the current campaign, Guendouzi has contributed significantly, tallying three goals and four assists across 40 appearances. He played pivotal roles in crucial moments such as Lazio’s triumph over Bayern Munich in the Champions League first leg and his involvement in the recent Derby della Capitale clash against Paulo Dybala.

Following reports from various sources, including TMW and, Lazio have  now officially secured Guendouzi’s services from Marseille after triggering his conditional purchase clause. To activate the clause, Lazio needed to finish at least 12th in the Serie A standings, a milestone that was confirmed mathematically after their hard-fought 1-0 victory over Genoa.
