Lazio have reportedly agreed a contract with Empoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli, but are some way off a deal with his club.
The centre-back has been impressive in his two Serie A seasons with the Tuscan side, inevitably attracting interest from some of the League’s bigger names.
Today Corriere dello Sport reports that it’s the Biancocelesti who are in pole position for his signature, having agreed on a five-year contract worth €1m per season.
However, they have yet to strike a deal with Empoli, who are thought to be asking for at least €10m to part with one of their star men.
