Lazio will attempt to sign out of contract Nice star Hatem Ben Arfa on a five-year deal, according to reports.
The former Newcastle United attacking midfielder has been in stunning form in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 17 goals in 32 appearances.
With his contract expiring in June, the Biancocelesti want to offer the 29-year-old a five-year deal, reports Corriere dello Sport.
The capital club will also tempt Ben Arfa with a guaranteed starting spot that would help him win back a place in the France team.
With many clubs including Milan interested and Nice wanting to keep their star man, Lazio will need to move quickly.
