Serie A side Lazio are interested in signing Galatasaray midfielder Lucas Torreira and have already made first contact for the player.
Torreira has had excellent spells in the Serie A during his time at Sampdoria and Fiorentina, having played in possession-first sides under Vincenzo Italiano and Marco Giampaolo.
Daniele Longo has now reported that Torreira could soon be playing under another possession-first manager in Maurizio Sarri, with Lazio having made first contact with the Turkish side to bring the Uruguayan back to the Italian top flight. Sarri is said to be an admirer of the player and he wants him at the Biancocelesti next season.
Contacts between the two clubs have been going on for the last few days and the Uruguayan could return to Serie A after just one season away in Turkey.
Last season, the former Arsenal man made 31 league appearances for Gala and played three times in the cup.
