Konko set for Lazio talks

Lazio will meet with the agent of Genoa's Abdoulay Konko today as they look to replace Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The latter will officially join Juventus this week, after he had his Juve medical on Monday, and Konko is one option that Lazio are looking at.

"I met with Lazio about two weeks ago and absolutely nothing was agreed," agent Daniele Conte told Radio Sei.

"I have another meeting lined up with them in Milan later today," he added. "Let's see what happens."

While Konko would accept a switch to the capital, agreeing personal terms seems to be the biggest problem.

"I think that Lazio and Genoa have already agreed terms, even if I'm not certain about that," Conte continued.

"I look after Konko and the Biancocelesti haven't done a deal with us. If the figures remain the same as the last meeting then the transfer won't happen."

Lazio are also pondering a move for Palermo right-back Mattia Cassani.
