Lazio admit they have encountered problems in finalising Strahinja Pavlovic’s arrival from Partizan Belgrade.
However, sporting director Igli Tare announced in a statement that negotiations had broken down.
“The failure to register player Strahinja Pavlovic is down to the lack of an agreement between the parties,” he told the club’s official website.
Given the 18-year-old was allowed to travel to Italy, the issue could have been over personal terms.
With just hours of the transfer window left, there may not be enough time for a resolution.
