Fulham Will Sign Strakosha After His Contract Is Expired Next Month

Thomas Strakosha is set to leave Lazio at the end of the season and is one step away from completing his move to Premier League club Fulham on a free transfer.

Albania goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, 27, will leave Lazio after 10 years when his contract expires next month. He was sidelined last year under manager Simone Inzaghi and joined as a backup goalkeeper for Pepe Reina, but has since rediscovered his best form and confidence this season under Maurizio Sarri.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Fulham has agreed on a four-year deal with Strakosha. There are few details at the moment until his move is fully confirmed.

Until recently, Lazio wanted to tie him to a new contract, but it was clear that the 27-year-old wanted to experience new atmospheres and challenges in the Premier League, so negotiations for a contract extension never went well.

The goalkeeper has made 208 appearances for the Biancoceleste since his arrival in the summer of 2012, helping his side win one Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cups.  Throughout his career with The Aquile, he has conceded 247 goals and kept 62 clean sheets, picked up 15 yellow cards, and has never been shown a red card.

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri's team has just been held to a draw by Hellas Verona in the final match of the 2021/22 season and they have locked in fifth place in the final standings.  The 27-year-old goalkeeper also appeared in Saturday night's match and at the same time, it was his last match with the Italian capital team.
