Premier League clubs are being linked with Catania striker Maxi Lopez.

Lazio are one of the clubs rumoured to be after the 27-year-old's signature, while he was linked with both Newcastle United and Birmingham last year and his agent Dario Bombini claims the player could make a move to England.

"His future? It is in Italy or the Premier League," Bombini told Italian website ItaSportPress. "In the coming days I will be in Catania for talks. We have to find a solution that satisfies my client and Catania."

Lopez has revived his career in Italy after a difficult spell at Barcelona.
