Rumours in Italy suggest The Old Lady want to lure the trio to Stadio Delle Alpi in exchange for Marco Di Vaio, Enzo Maresca and Emanuele Blasi.
The speculation, however, contradicts recent comments from Juve general manager Luciano Moggi, who stated the club would not be seeking major reinforcements during the summer.
Lazio have also affirmed their intention to hang on to Corradi and Stam while they would also be reluctant to part company with midfield ace Fiore.
Corradi would be perceived as a straight swap for Di Vaio in attack but Lazio expect the Italian international to see out the remaining three years on his contract at Stadio Olimpico.
Dutch defender Stam has hinted at an exit from the Eternal City and his Lazio future is in the balance, with the former Manchester United stopper the most likely of the triumvirate to leave.
From the Juventus standpoint, it would appear the prospects of Blasi leaving Turin are slim as he will be officially presented to the press and supporters on Thursday.
Blasi was signed by Juventus last summer from Perugia but was allowed to stay with Serse Cosmi's troops for the season to accrue experience.
Juve coach Marcello Lippi plans to employ Blasi in his plans for next term along with midfielder Maresca, who is returning to Stadio Delle Alpi from Piacenza.
The rumours of a mammoth deal were sparked after Moggi met his Lazio counterpart Luca Baraldi in a Milan hotel after a league meeting on Wednesday.
