It’s reported Lazio could steal Feyenoord defender Stefan De Vrij from under Manchester United noses.
The Biancocelesti have been openly chasing the Dutch centre-back for months, but saw their initial €7m offer turned down for being “too low.”
Manchester United leapt into the lead, but according to the Corriere dello Sport that situation could change.
It is claimed Lazio are ready to raise their bid to meet Feyenoord’s asking price of €9m (£7m).
President Claudio Lotito is under huge pressure to deliver a major reinforcement for the defence, as this week he missed out on Davide Astori, seeing the Cagliari man go to rivals Roma instead.
This sparked a huge protest from already-unhappy fans and director of sport Igli Tare revealed he received threats, forcing him to change his phone number.
