Lazio are close to agreeing a double swoop for defender Gustavo Cabral and Boukary Drame, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Despite recruiting Milan Bisevac from Lyon, the Biancocelesti hope to sign another central defender before the January transfer window closes.
La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that Lazio have all but agreed to sign Argentine stopper Gustavo Cabral from Celta Vigo.
At the same time, Atalanta full-back Boukary Drame is nearing a move to Stadio Olimpico as well, but the Biancocelesti also need to offload two players the new recruits will be replacing.
With Verona and Bologna having failed to submit an attractive offer for Santiago Gentiletti, it looks as though Mauricio will be sold instead, with Hamburg, Stuttgart and Schalke all casting admiring glances his way.
Meanwhile, Salernitana have been showing interest in Edson Braafheid, 32, who has made just one substitute appearance for the club in Serie A this season.
