According to reports in Italy, Lazio are interested in making an offer in the summer for Ghanian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The 28-year-old was indefinitely suspended by the German side alongside team-mate Sidney Sam on Monday.
Both The Corriere della Sera and Tuttosport are reporting that Lazio’s director Igli Tare has launched a second bid for Boateng, after the club failed to secure his signature back in 2010.
The Biancoceleste have offered the former AC Milan star a four-year-deal, worth €2.2m per season, plus bonuses.
Boateng’s contract at Schalke runs until 2016, and the side managed by former Chelsea player and coach Roberto Di Matteo are asking for €6m. However, a loan deal is also a possible option.
Also, Tuttomercatoweb have claimed that Tare is interested in bringing in Werder Bremen’s defender Luca Caldirola, who looks set to depart the Weserstadion in the summer.
Caldirola, 24, has been the captain for the Azzurri Under-21 side, and has been in Germany for two years since signing from Inter in 2013.
