Lazio could complete the signing of Stefan De Vrij from Feyenoord as soon as next week, it has been suggested.
The 22-year-old has been a perennial starter for the Eredivisie outfit last term, playing in 32 matches and scoring four times.
After an impressive campaign, several European clubs have registered an interest, but it is the Biancocelesti who are thought to be in pole position for his signature.
Il Messaggero report that President Claudio Lotito has offered an initial €4m for the defender, and another €4m next summer.
That offer seems to have been accepted by the Dutch outfit, with negotiations to take place next week.
