Lazio patron Claudio Lotito has his eyes firmly fixed on Udinese's Gaetano D'Agostino, but so far the Bianconeri have resisted his efforts to prise the midfielder away from them.
Sunday morning saw Lotito offer Cristian Ledesma, valued at €15 million by Lazio, in a straight swap for D'Agostino. According to calciomercato.com, the Aquilotti president then added Mourad Meghni and Guglielmo Stendardo to the equation.
With Fiorentina interested in taking Ledesma themselves, however, Lazio are currently mulling over their next offer for D'Agostino. The website claims that Ledesma will be replaced in the offer with a more valuable player, the identity of whom is unknown.
Zebrette president Giampaolo Pozzo has so far rejected the bids coming his way from the Eternal City, but a time may come when the offer appears to be too good to refuse.
A fact that will surely come into Udinese's consideration is Lazio's desire to cut down their squad by offloading unwanted fringe players, as well as the three 'rebels'.
D'Agostino is also a key element in the Bianconeri squad and Pozzo is unwilling to sell the former Roma player to one of their Serie A rivals.
