Lazio have competed the signing of Angola international defender Bastos from Russian Premier League side Rostov.
The 24-year-old played in both legs of Rostov’s Champions League qualifying victory over Anderlecht – the club’s European debut – but was not part of the matchday squad for Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Ajax as his move to Lazio neared completion.

The terms of the transfer were not disclosed, although Lazio are reported to have sanctioned a fee in the region of €6.5million.
