Lazio are targeting Slovenia international Milivoje Novakovic, but face competition from Palermo.
It was reported yesterday that the Biancocelesti were showing an interest in the Cologne hitman.
Lazio had scouts in the stands to view Novakovic during the 1-0 Italy victory in Ljubljana on Friday evening.
However, it's now said that Palermo are joining the race for the 31-year-old striker.
They could well have the upper hand, as the Sicilians already have four Slovenians in their squad.
Novakovic would join Josip Ilicic, Armin Bacinovic, Sinisa Andjelkovic and Jasmin Kurtic.
