Reports are out claiming that Lazio are willing to do business with Watford over Keita Balde Diao.
The Hornets are launching a bid for the Senegal international hopeful.
And Il Tiempo claims that Lazio president Claudio Lotito is open to the sale – if Udinese become involved.
Lotito is keen on Udinese defender Thomas Heurtaux and hopes to use Watford’s pursuit of Diao to convince the Pozzo family to sell.
The Pozzos own Udinese and Watford.
The talented striker is also linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool.
