Lazio are weighing up a surprise move for AZ Alkmaar striker Jozy Altidore, reports Il Corriere dello Sport.
With Libor Kozak likely to leave in the summer and Miroslav Klose not getting any younger, the Biancocelesti are determined to improve their attacking options in the summer transfer window.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, United States international Jozy Altidore has moved to the top of their hit-list.
Lazio officials have been impressed with the player’s performances this season and his €5 million price tag makes him all the more appealing.
Jozy Altidore has found it hard to get his career back on track after leaving New York Red Bulls for Europe, but he seems to have finally started playing to his potential.
Since joining AZ Alkmaar in the summer of 2011, the 23-year-old has managed 38 goals in 67 league appearances, and could now be set for a big club move.
