The 32-year-old is out-of-favour at Stadio Olimpico and a move to Scotland could appeal.
Di Stefano is now looking to broker a deal to bring the Italian stopper to Tayside.
"Our real weakness, in my view as a supporter, is in defence," said di Stefano.
"That is why we're talking with Mr Colonnese and my friends at Lazio about whether they'll release him for a period."
Di Stefano also revealed that he is back on the trail of Edgar Davids.
The Dens Park investor looked into the possibility of signing Davids earlier this year, only for his plans to come up short.
The Dutch star is being strongly tipped to move to Roma when his Juve contract expires in the summer and di Stefano wants to take advantage of this by taking him on loan.
"We are negotiating with Mr Davids to come in January for five months," Davids told The Sunday Mail.
"By January, we'll know roughly where we are - if for example we are in third place with a nine-point cushion, we don't need him.
"If we're in fifth place, hell, I need him. Because if we're in third, we qualify for the new Uefa Cup where there is a mini-league with eight games. That's a cheque for £6million.
"It would simply be a loan deal because he's going to AS Roma without a doubt.
"People say why spend £1.7million for five months but look what we might get back."
