Freiburg left wing-back Felix Bastians has made great strides in the Bundesliga this season, and has reportedly attracted interest from Lazio.
According to Kicker, Lazio have already been in touch with the 22-year-old's agent. However, a deal may still be far from complete.
"No club has made contact with us and the player has not come to us [to request a transfer]," Freiburg sporting director Dirk Dufner said.
Bastians has made 50 appearances since joining Freiburg in 2009. He also made nine appearances for the Germany U-21 national team.
