Klose: 'I'd love to play for Lazio'

Miroslav Klose has fuelled reports of a January switch to Lazio. “I've been following their progress and won't deny I'd love to play there.”

The German international's contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of the season and he could well push for an early departure worth €4m.

“I know that I will almost certainly leave Bayern at the end of the season,” said the 32-year-old centre-forward.

Lazio director Igli Tare has been spotted in Germany, reportedly for negotiations with Bayern duo Klose and Diego Contento.

“I have been following the Biancocelesti's progress and they are doing very well,” continued Klose.

“Rome is also a wonderful city and I cannot deny I'd love to play there.”

Contento has made it clear he wants a Serie A move and to play for Italy, as his parents hail from Naples.

The 20-year-old left-back is a very promising prospect and Coach Cesare Prandelli is already thought to be keeping an eye on him.

Contento would be available for around €7.5m.
