According to reports from Italian outlet Il Messaggero, Lazio are currently eyeing up a move for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha.

Lazio recently lost the services of star man Antonio Candreva to Inter Milan and it will certainly be a very difficult task for Biancocelesti to replace such a quality player.

With the Italian Serie A season set to commence soon, Lazio will be looking to bring in a replacement for Candreva as soon as possible, and it had been claimed by the Gazzetta dello Sport (via MEN) that the capital-based outfit would be looking to sign Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj.

Now according to surprise reports from Il Messaggero, Lazio are also said to have shortlisted Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha as another target.

Following his struggles at Manchester United, Zaha has been able to revive his career at Palace over the past two seasons and the winger currently looks on the right track to fulfill his undoubted potential.

As a result, Zaha seems to be attracting the interest from a couple of clubs this summer and reports from Italy state that the winger is currently wanted by Lazio.

Zaha would perhaps be tempted by a new adventure in Serie A but it remains to be seen if Palace will want to part with one of their key players, and Lazio will probably have to splash a sizeable amount to lure the Englishman away from Selhurst Park this summer.
