Luka Romero has bid goodbye to the Lazio fans and will be leaving the Italian club this summer after just two seasons. With Lazio deciding to not renew the young Argentine’s contract, he became transfer target for a lot of clubs. The Argentine star confirmed his departure from Lazio with a heartfelt thankyou note to the club and it’s fans on his Instagram handle.
Fabrizio Romano reported that the 18 year old Argentine will sign for AC Milan as a free agent and the documentation is in it’s final stages. The youngster is set to sign a four year contract, which will see him remain with the Rossoneris till 2027, reported the Italian journalist.
Time at Lazio
The 2004 born midfielder was signed by Lazio in the summer of 2021 and straight away became part of the senior team setup.
Unfortunately, things did not work out at Lazio as the player would have hoped as he struggled for minutes. The
diminutive Argentine only made 14 appearances for the Biancocelesti in his two year stint, lack of regular minutes has stunted his development. The highlight of his time with Lazio was when he scored the winner against Monza back in November 2022.
Who is Luka Romero
The Mexico born attacker emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in Argentine football. Romero has the skill-set to play as a right winger as well as an attacking midfielder.
With his beautiful dribbling skills, vision and technical ability, the talented midfielder achieved a historic feat when he made his debut for Mallorca in 2020, making him the youngest debutant in La Liga at just the age of 15.
Being a left-footed Argentine, with wonderful dribbling skills and a small frame, comparisons with a certain Lionel Messi were inevitable. Being touted as the ‘next Messi’ is a huge, and unfair burden, but one that Romero must deal with.
Fali Ramadani, the agent of nimble footed Argentine met with AC Milan’s CEO Giorgio Furlani last week where they came up with an agreement in principle for Romero’s contract
AC Milan will be getting a technically gifted player, with immense potential. Romero can play on the right-wing as well as in the attacking midfield position. It remains to be seen where Stefano Pioli deploys him.
Although the Argentine might not have enjoyed the best of times with Lazio, his exceptional talent and sky-high potential is undeniable. Only time will tell if he will make his mark at the San Siro and cement a starting place in the seven time UCL winner’s set-up
