New Lazio signing Brayan Perea speaks to the media ahead of his arrival in Italy. Perea will arrive in Italy on Tuesday night and the next day will have his medical examination at the Paideia clinic.

"I'm ready, I can't wait. Arriving at a big club like Lazio brings me immense joy. It will not be easy to adapt to a different culture but I will try to do so in as short a time as possible. I am a striker and that's the position I prefer. I have been inspired by many players but I have a soft spot for Ibrahimovic. I am used to playing in different roles such as attacking midfielder and in the centre - it's important to serve the team."

"I have not had the pleasure to talk to Mr. Petkovic yet, but I have been following the team here in Colombia, both in the league and the cup. I have been told that the Derby is a different game altogether. It always happens in Derbies that there is tension so could you imagine one with a big team like Lazio? However I cannot wait to experience it first hand and enjoy the emotions."

"I know I am a young player and still have to learn many things, but I always have the right spirit to tackle every challenge I have faced in my life. Training alongside Klose will help me to grow."

Perea was pleased with Tare's comments on him stating that while the club are looking for a striker to compliment Klose not to underestimate Perea's transfer.

"This makes me proud, but I must use this as an extra incentive to take advantage of the opportunity I have been given. The support of the fans is very important and I will do my best to reward their trust. I can do it."
