Angelo Peruzzi is being linked with a sensational return to Lazio.

The former goalkeeper is being mentioned as a potential replacement for Walter Sabatini as Lazio's new sports director.

Sabatini handed in his resignation on Saturday and will speak with Lazio president Claudio Lotito in the coming days about his situation. Sabatini could revert to his former role as football advisor, so leaving the way clear for Peruzzi to fill the vacant sports director's position.
