Lazio up De Vrij offer - report

With Stefano Pioli’s assertion that Lazio need two defenders to challenge for Europe, reports are that they have stepped up their chase for Stefan De Vrij.

Feyenoord are rumoured to have rejected a €5.5m bid from the capital club earlier in the summer.

But believe that the Aquile have upped that offer to €7m in order to capture the Netherlands international.

Coach Pioli had claimed earlier on Monday that the club needed a pair of defenders to keep up with their rivals for a European place, and it seems that De Vrij is their first target to appease the tactician.

After some impressive displays at this summer’s World Cup though, it is unclear whether the Eredivisie outfit will accept that second bid.
