Lazio are reportedly closing in on Feyenoord’s Dutch international Stefan De Vrij in a deal worth €8m.
The Biancocelesti have long been interested in the defender, who starred at the World Cup in Brazil and came away with a bronze medal.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Lazio have now raised their offer to €7m and it is very close to Feyenoord’s €9m asking price.
It is believed that another meeting on Sunday will help push through the strategy and on Monday the agreement could be reached for €8m.
De Vrij had also been linked with Manchester United last month.
