Lazio are stepping up their attempts to sign Empoli defender Federico Barba after Simone Inzaghi was appointed as Coach.
The transfer strategy is transformed now that Marcelo Bielsa has refused to take the job, instead making way for Inzaghi.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Inzaghi is in favour of bringing in centre-back Barba from Empoli.
The opening offer is expected to be in the region of €3m.
The 22-year-old spent the last six months on loan in Germany with VfB Stuttgart and has been linked with Genoa this summer.
