Blues boss Steve Bruce moved to tie up the duo after successfully reaching agreement with Christophe Dugarry over new terms last week.
Goalkeeper Bennett and winger Lazaridis would both be under contract until the end of the 2004/05 season should they put pen-to-paper on the deals.
The Midlanders have also taken up an option to extend striker Stern John's contract by a further year, while central defender Peter Gilbert has been offered a twelve-month extension to his current deal.
Meanwhile, academy prospect Mark Allen has been handed a one-year professional contract, and young defender Joey Hutchinson has been given month-to-month terms.
