Miroslav Klose’s agent has confirmed that the Lazio forward’s preferred option would be to remain with the Biancocelesti.
The German veteran’s contract at Stadio Olimpico expires this summer and he has been linked with a move away from the club.
However, Alexander Schutt today confirmed to German media that while nothing has yet been signed, the 35-year-old wants to stay in Rome.
“We have been talking a lot to Lazio,” Schutt said. “We have had several discussions in the recent past.
“But there has still been nothing signed. We are also in contact with other clubs, but our first choice is obviously Lazio.”
Biancocelesti sporting director Igli Tare said recently that negotiations over a new deal for the player were going well.
