Candreva is currently part-owned by Udinese, who are negotiating with Lazio over a deal that would see them give up their claim to the player.

But those negotiations have gone far from smoothly, with the two clubs disagreeing about whether the fee should be paid in full or in instalments.

And with Candreva set to enter the final year of his contract next season both clubs want to have the issue resolved before the World Cup in the summer.

Whilst it still seems likely that Candreva will ultimately end up sticking with Lazio, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal would all be more than happy to bring the midfielder to England.

And it seems that the feeling is mutual, with Candreva reportedly intrigued by the idea of playing in the Premier League.

Liverpool, in particular, were linked with a move for Candreva in January while the Gunners and United have also been keeping an eye of the former Juventus loanee.
