Lazio are on standby as Zenit St Petersburg defender Fernando Meira vividly promulgates his message to join them.
"Lazio? I like the Italian league as it is one of the best in the world, but for now there has been no official decision about me moving to Italy," he told Il Corriere dello Sport.
"I cannot decide myself. Every player wants to be able to play and my future will decided shortly."
Lazio have been chasing the Portuguese stopper who has experience having previously played at Benfica and Stuttgart.
Igli Tare and Claudio Lotito are expected to re-open dialogue with Zenit and the player after establishing first contacts in August.
