Muslera keen to agree new deal

Lazio goalkeeper Fernando Muslera is keen to sign a new contract with the Eternal City outfit, according to the player's agent.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper has made 31 Serie A appearances for the Biancocelesti  since arriving from Montevideo Wanderers in his native Uruguay in 2007.

And the 6ft 3in glove-man's form has recently earned him international honours, with Muslera winning his first caps for Uruguay earlier this month in 2010 World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Argentina.

As a result, the youngster has been linked with moves away from the Italian capital, with Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal all believed to be monitoring his progress, as well as Juventus.

However, the player's representitive, Daniel Fonseca, has revealed that he is confident of negotiating a new deal with Lazio president Claudio Lotito to ensure Muslera stays with the Stadio Olimpico side.

"I hope everything goes for the best. I have spoken to Lotito, and I hope there are no surprises," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"We have been speaking to the president and there have been important signs. He knows our will is to proceed with Lazio."
