Whilst Sinisa Mihajlovic has apparently made himself available to Lazio, the club are reportedly considering keeping hold of Edy Reja.
The Aquile are seen as holding a series of meetings this week with Reja, who returned midseason to replace Vladimir Petkovic, with a view to planning for next season.
Whilst early speculation was that Claudio Lotito and Igli Tare were seriously considering removing the veteran from the bench and Lotito was later listed as having held detailed talks with Sampdoria boss Mihajlovic, reports today suggest a new angle.
The Corriere dello Sport indicate that the Biancocelesti are increasingly in favour of continuing along with Reja and strengthening the squad this summer with four or five arrivals, including confirming full ownership of Antonio Candreva from Udinese.
Yet, Tuttosport report that Mihajlovic remains interested in the role and has apparently made clear his openness to a move to the Olimpico, where he played for six years with the club, with Dejan Stankovic apparently seen as his intended assistant Coach.
Sampdoria, meanwhile, are reported as still pressing to try to convince Miha to remain at Marassi, although an apparent €10m budget to reinforce the squad is seen as perhaps not enough.
