Lazio held talks with David Silva's representatives last week to convince the Manchester City midfielder to move to Serie A, sources told ESPN's Moises Llorens.
Silva, who's leaving City after 10 years, is reportedly interested in playing in Italy next season.
Lazio face competition from Qatari side Al-Sadd, where Barcelona legend and Silva's former Spain teammate Xavi is manager. Xavi wants Silva to join him in the Middle East, according to Llorens.
Valencia were reportedly considering re-signing Silva before the coronavirus pandemic.
