Lazio are likely to compete with Arsenal and Real Betis to secure the signature of Liverpool fullback Alberto Moreno, according to reports in Italy.
The 26-year-old is out of contract at the end of this month and will be available on a free transfer.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Moreno but supporters are very much hoping that Lazio beat them to his signature:
Please Lazio I beg you. Please beat us to this signing

Moreno played very little for Liverpool last season, with Andy Robertson favoured ahead of him in the left-back position.
He has been often criticised for making too many mistakes defensively, but Arsenal manager Unai Emery has worked with the player previously.
The Spaniard played regularly during Emery’s first season in charge at Sevilla, helping the Spanish club secure the first of three consecutive Europa League trophies, before moving to Merseyside for £12m in 2014.
With Moreno now available on a free, the Gunners boss may be tempted to make a move for the fullback.
