Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva could be on the move in the January transfer window after becoming frustrated that the Italian club have not offered him a new contract. 

This has been reported by The Express, who have suggested that Lazio president Claudio Lotito promised the highly rated 27-year-old a new deal because of his loyalty to the club despite their poor campaign in the 2013/14 season which saw them finish in ninth place in the Serie A.

The same report has suggested that the midfielder could now be on the move in the January transfer window after becoming angry at the club over the contract saga. And it appears that a number of clubs could be ready to bring him to the Premier League, with the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool interested in his services. 

However, if the likes of Liverpool and Co. are going to bring the Serie A ace to England, then they may have to pay as much as £24 million for his services in the winter market. It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the English clubs step up their interest in the former Juventus man, who scored 12 times in 37 league appearances last term. 

At 27, Candreva is entering the prime of his career and he would prove a coup for a number of England's sides. Lazio may yet look to open negotiations with the midfielder, but Liverpool and co. will certainly be keeping an eye on developments. 

Immediate focus 

For now though, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool will all be looking to find some form in England's elite division after indifferent starts. The trio will all be hoping to secure a place in the Champions League this season as they go in search of domestic glory. 

Fans of Arsenal and Liverpool, meanwhile, will be excited ahead of the group stages of the Champions League. The Gunners travel to Dortmund on September 16, whilst Liverpool begin their European venture with a clash against Ludogorets at Anfield on the same evening.
