Lazio remain keen on Manchester City striker Georgios Samaras.

The People says Samaras could be offered a way out of his Eastlands nightmare by Italian club Lazio. Samaras has scored 12 goals in 63 appearances since signings from Dutch side Heerenveen in 2006 for £6million.

The Greek international has only started two league games under Sven-Goran Eriksson. Lazio are in discussions to lure him.
