Liverpool could be a step closer to signing Thomas Strakosha from Lazio with the Italians reportedly close to announcing his replacement.

The Albania star enjoyed an impressive season in Serie A. Strakosha would cost in the region of €30m (£26.4m), claim Calciomercato, with Lazio seemingly settling on their replacement.

Despite links with Iker Casillas, Lazio are now on the verge of announcing Olympiacos goalkeeper Silvio Proto, who is a Belgian international but has an Italian passport.
