Stuttgart defender Holger Badstuber opens door to Lazio move

Stuttgart defender Holger Badstuber has opened the door to signing for Lazio.

Badstuber is viewed at Lazio as a replacement for Stefan de Vrij, who is now running down his contract.

“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.

Lazio, Roma and Juventus are doing very well in Europe."
