Lazio are monitoring the contract situation of Schalke and Holland international Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, reports claim.
The striker is only tied to his German club until June 2013 and could thus be available on a Bosman next summer.
Lazio are understood to be interested in pairing the 29-year-old with Miroslav Klose, a player who they signed from Bayern Munich for free in 2011.
Huntelaar, formerly of Ajax and Real Madrid, is no stranger to Serie A after moving to Milan for €15m in the summer of 2009.
However, he left for Schalke a year later after scoring just seven goals in 25 League games for the Stadio Meazza giants.
