Lazio have reportedly struck a deal for Partizan Belgrade defender Strahinja Pavlovic.
Pavlovic had initially been linked with Juventus, but Gianluca Di Marzio’s website writes he is now his way to Lazio for €5.5m.
However, the 18-year-old will remain at Partizan on loan for another season.
The Serbia Under-19 international only made his professional debut in February and went on to play 15 times for the capital club, who finished third last term.
He is set to be the Aquile’s third centre-back purchase of the summer after Denis Vavro and Andreas Karo.
