Lazio have decide to step up their interest in Slovakian centre-back Denis Vavro of FC Copenhagen. On Wednesday, a Biancocelesti executive travelled to Denmark to lay the basis for the deal, that is now steadily becoming more concrete.
Lazio have submitted a bid of 9 million euros plus an additional million in add-ons, and they are confident they can close the deal by next Monday, regardless of the fact that the Danish club is yet to find a replacement. The 23-year old is expected to be in Copenaghen on Friday in order to take the pre-season medicals and that could be an occasion to meet the club and take a decision over Lazio's offer. Also Roma and Atalanta had shown interest in the centre-back but at the moment Lazio are well ahead of other suitors.
