Lazio are reportedly considering Celtic’s Dedryck Boyata as an alternative to Francesco Acerbi.
The Biancocelesti need a new centre-back, as Stefan de Vrij is joining Inter on a free transfer.
It was expected that Acerbi would be the man to come in, but so far there has been little progress in talks with Sassuolo.
According to Il Messaggero, the Aquile are considering Boyata as a potential alternative, with his contract expiring next summer.
Lazio are ready to offer €6-8m for the Belgian international, who the Hoops are said to be willing to sell after he refused to renew his contract.
