Portsmouth full-back Nadir Belhadj has attracted strong interest from Lazio, according to the player's agent.
The 27-year-old left-sided player is set to leave Pompey this summer after their relegation from the Premier League last season.
Pompey are currently in administration and in the midst of a financial crisis, and are expected to sell a number of their prized assets.
Lazio will be competing in Serie A next term, and Belhadj's agent Marko Pomarin says they are keen to snap up the Algerian.
"I confirm the interest of Lazio in the player, we are seeking an agreement with the club," he told calcionews24.com.
"Competition is high but I'm sure that Lazio will not miss a player good like Belhadj."
Belhadj is currently competing with Algeria in the World Cup and the Desert Foxes take on England on Friday night.
Lazio finished the Italian top-flight in 12th last term and the Biancocelesti will be hoping for a top-half berth next season.
