Lazio are reportedly close to a deal for Sassuolo defender Francesco Acerbi, with Danilo Cataldi to be included in the transfer.
The Biancocelesti are looking for a centre-back this summer, as Stefan de Vrij is joining Inter on a free transfer.
Acerbi quickly emerged as the top target, and Sky Italia believes Neroverdi President Giorgio Squinzi will make the deal happen, as an act of gratitude to a loyal player.
The Aquile will include Cataldi in the deal, but as things stand their offer hasn’t met Sassuolo’s valuation.
