Lazio are looking to use the money from Hernanes' sale to sweeten Parma's coffers twice this year, though their initial hopes on Jonathan Biabiany are stalling.

According to Sky Italia, Lazio are keen to have Biabiany this season for a €3m fee, though Sampdoria will need to give their assent as well.

Sampdoria are co-owners of the winger, but Lazio president Claudio Lotito is hoping to convince Parma enough of the deal to tip the scales.

Lotito is believed to be promising Parma of making another purchase from the club next summer, should Biabiany be allowed to come to Rome today.


However, the discussions have come to a standstill at present, as the Italian transfer window comes to a close.

It remains to be seen if Parma will instead sell Biabiany to AC Milan, who, according to Sportmediaset, are also following the player.

Lazio recently saw Hernanes depart for Inter Milan, and are willing to enter the market, especially with Miroslav Klose also potentially eyeing an exit.

Biabiany is a former Inter Milan, Parma and Sampdoria player as well, though he has spent all his professional career in Italy.
