Stefan de Vrij
Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is confident Liverpool target Stefan de Vrij will sign a new deal.
The defender's current contract with the Italian club expires at the end of the season, meaning he can leave for free in the summer.
Liverpool are interested in signing the Dutchman, as are Italian champions Juventus.
But, ahead of meeting today in Rome with De Vrij's agent, Tare is hopeful a deal can be struck to keep Lazio's star defender.
"The next few hours will be decisive, but we're in a good place and there will be positive news soon," Tare told Sky Sport Italia.
"Obviously, for as long as there's nothing in black or white, nothing's certain, but there will be good news soon."
