Sadly Lazio have now confirmed that De Vrij will go under the knife next week, with chief medic Stefano Salvatori stating the 24-year-old will be unavailable for a while.

Salvastori said, “Today we met Stefan de Vrij and the Dutch defender will undergo surgery next week,”

“We will soon confirm where the operation will take place. Unfortunately, this decision was necessary.

“The time taken to recover will be quite long.”
