“Abroad fascinates me," Badstuber explained to Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Teams with tradition that play in Europe are very motivating, my friend [Miroslav] Klose played at Lazio, so I know about that reality.
“He was happy in the city, at the club, and he had a connection with the fans. I've heard great things about Lazio.
“Out of respect for Stuttgart though, with whom I'm aiming for important objectives, I won't talk about any negotiation.
“I have experience and I've won things, but you can always improve. Serie A is ahead tactically, and defenders learn there.
