Bartolomeu Jacinto Quissanga, simply known as Bastos, arrived at Lazio from Rostov in 2016 and has never made more than 16 league starts in a season for the Italian side.
Earlier in July, we carried a report from Corriere Della Sera, who explained that Leicester City and Watford had their eyes on the defender. The same month, La Lazio Siamo Noi reported the Hornets and the Foxes made contact over signing the centre-back.
The Angola international also drew attention from other clubs across Europe, but failed to get a move away from the Serie A side. His contract with his current employer runs until 2021.
Lazio are ready to offer a one year extension to the player and this is reported by Calciomercato.it. However, he demands a longer contract and a better economic deal to sign a new deal.
While explaining the renewal offer, the Italian website states Leicester and Watford made an offer for Baston in the summer, which were ‘refused’ by Simone Inzaghi’s side.
