Il Messaggero are reporting that Lazio have come up with the idea of bringing in Atalanta's German Denis in a swap deal which involves Sergio Floccari.
It is no secret that the Biancocelesti are on the lookout for a striker this winter mercato and the names which have appeared on President Lotito’s shortlist in recent weeks are Juventus' Fabio Quagliarella, AC Milan’s Alessandro Matri and German Denis. In appears though that in the last few days the front runner is indeed the former-Napoli front man, Denis.
The Il Messaggero report suggests the Roman club could offer around €2 million to Atalanta this January, in addition to Floccari for their experienced Argentinean striker.
Denis has been in good form this season for the Bergamo based club, scoring 7 goals in 18 games. In comparison, Quagliarella has scored just 1 in 13 games for the Old Lady, while Matri has notched up 1 in 15 for the Rossoneri.
Earlier this week another report confirmed that Bologna had offered nearly €1 million to Lazio for the services of Floccari, however that was quickly turned down by the club.
