Lazio drop Yilmaz for Matavz?

Lazio are having difficulty tempting Burak Yilmaz from Galatasaray, so consider PSV striker Tim Matavz instead.

For the last few days there have been reports emanating from Turkey that Lazio are in negotiations for Yilmaz.

President Claudio Lotito is possibly set to fly out to Istanbul for personal talks to help push through the move.

It will be very difficult, as the €8m offer is a long way off Galatasaray’s15m asking price.

Therefore, according to the Corriere dello Sport, the Biancocelesti are turning their attention towards PSV Eindhoven forward Matavz.

It’s reported agent Federico Pastorello met with Lazio director of sport Igli Tare in Rome.

The 24-year-old Slovenian centre-forward scored 23 goals in 49 games last season in all competition between club and country.
