Cana becomes Lazio's seventh summer signing

S.S. Lazio have continued to reinforce their squad ahead of their UEFA Europa League campaign by completing the signing of midfielder Lorik Cana from Galatasaray AŞ.

S.S. Lazio have ushered in their seventh summer signing after reaching an agreement to lure midfielder Lorik Cana from Galatasaray AŞ for an undisclosed fee.

Albanian international Cana, who will turn 28 on 27 July, has made Lazio his fifth professional club after agreeing a deal about which no precise details have been revealed, other than the transfer of 25-year-old Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera in the opposite direction.

Cana started his career in Ligue 1 after emerging from the Paris Saint-Germain FC youth system, and from there he joined Olympique de Marseille in 2005. He spent four seasons with the Mediterranean outfit, followed by a year at Premier League side Sunderland AFC before his arrival in Turkey in summer 2010. Last month, the versatile midfielder won his 50th cap for Albania in their 2-0 UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group D loss to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Lazio have already bolstered their ranks significantly ahead of their UEFA Europa League campaign, which they will begin in the play-off round. The capital club have brought in Miroslav Klose, Djibril Cissé, Federico Marchetti, Abdoulay Konko, Senad Lulić and Marius Stankevičius.
