Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri has given the greenlight for a move for Chelsea shotstopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
La Repubblica reports that Lazio are going after a loan deal for the Spanish goalkeeper that will see them pay half of his wages.
Pepe Reina, 38, is currently Lazio’s No 1 but the club are said to be looking for a longer term solution.
The ex-Liverpool keeper is on loan from AC Milan and his deal expires at the end of next season.
Kepa, 26, lost his place to Edouard Mendy last season, despite the Blues having paid a goalkeeper world record £71million for his services in 2018.
The Spaniard featured sporadically under Thomas Tuchel, but could be offered an escape route to Italy in the coming months.
