Lazio have reportedly passed up Borussia Dortmund winger Andre Schurrle and will instead sign Malaga forward Jony Rodriguez.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Dortmund were prepared to give Schurrle to Lazio on loan with an option to buy and a reduced salary.
The Germany international scored six goals for Fulham last season and was wanted by the Aquile a year ago.
However, the newspaper writes they rejected the proposal as sporting director Igli Tare is closing in on a deal for Jony.
The 27-year-old caught the eye in La Liga last season with four goals and 11 assists for loan club Alaves, who finished comfortably in midtable.
