The agent of West Brom defender Gabriel Tamas claims his client is closing on a move to Lazio.
The 27-year-old has also been linked with Lazio's Serie A rivals Cesena and Novara.
He would, however, favour a switch to Stadio Olimpico and 'has been in talks with Lazio for over a month'.
There are still some issues which need to be resolved, but Tamas' representative is confident a deal will be struck to take the Romania international to Rome.
"We are in negotiations and Lazio like the lad very much," agent Ivan Reggiani told lalaziosiamonoi.
"I would like to point out that we have never had contact with Cesena or Novara. The only Italian club he'll accept, apart from Milan, Inter and Juventus, is Lazio.
"He is fascinated by the chance to play alongside his fellow countryman, Stefan Radu. The Biancocelesti remain our priority and we've been in talks with them for over a month.
"We are at an advanced stage and Tamas is very likely to wear the Lazio shirt next season. The only doubts are around his behaviour.
"President Claudio Lotito and director Igli Tare are considering this aspect, but I can assure them Tamas is an exemplary professional. He's always the first to arrive at training and the last to leave."
Tamas joined West Brom on loan in January 2010, before completing a permanent switch from Auxerre last summer.
He penned a three-and-a-half-year contract in December, but could now be on his way to Italy less than seven months into that agreement.
