Serie A outfit Lazio are believed to be considering a January swoop for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov.
The Bulgarian striker is out of contract at the end of the season and during the summer his agent Emil Danchev stated Berbatov intended to see out his deal at Craven Cottage, following links with Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg.
Lazio, however, are keen to bring in a new frontman as German veteran Miroslav Klose is expected to retire at the end of the season.
The Italian club have been tipped to make a move in the January transfer window and Fulham may well accept a cut-price bid due to Berbatov's contract situation, although a move at the end of the season when the 32-year-old will be a free agent seems more likely.
Berbatov would be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with the Biancocelesti in January due to the fact his current deal comes to a close at the end of the campaign.
