Lazio are being linked with a host of keepers as they look for Angelo Peruzzi's successor.
Lazio are being linked with a host of goalkeepers as they look for Angelo Peruzzi's successor.
The Roman giants are scouring Europe for a new number one - with veteran Peruzzi expected to retire this summer.
At this point there are two big names being tipped for a move to the Stadio Olimpico in the summer in the shape of Celtic's Artur Boruc and Morgan De Sanctis of Udinese.
Boruc has had a sensational season at Parkhead and is being tipped to make a summer move.
South of the border in England, Arsenal and Aston Villa have already been linked - whilst Juventus and Milan are also said to have checked on him.
Now Lazio are said to be considering a move - although Celtic remain adamant that the Pole will be staying put.
De Sanctis's agent Claudio Vagheggi, has wasted little time in admitting that his charge would accept a move to Lazio.
"He wants to move to an important club," Claudio Vagheggi told Teleradiostereo.
"De Sanctis's adventure with Udinese is about to finish, Morgan is eager to play in an important club that has European ambitions as well. His next destination might be Lazio.
"President Claudio Lotito is looking for Angelo Peruzzi's successor and he has already made enquiries about De Sanctis to Giampaolo Pozzo [Udinese president]."
