Alessio Romagnoli turned down offers from Premier League clubs to join SS Lazio as a free agent this summer, 90min understands.

The former AC Milan captain became a free agent in June after the expiration of his contract at San Siro – bringing an end to a seven year spell at the club. Romagnoli won his first Serie A title at Milan last season, but was a bit-part player during the 2021/22 season, making 16 league starts.

The 27-year-old, who began his career at AS Roma, officially joined Lazio on Tuesday, signing a five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico.

Speaking after the announcement, Romagnoli said: “The first Serie A game I saw was a Lazio game. [Sven-Goran] Eriksson’s Lazio.

“I always saw Nesta as captain. I also had his poster. He was the strongest of all in my opinion, no one will ever be like him.
