FORMER Chelsea chief Maurizio Sarri is tipped to decide by Friday if he will become Lazio boss.
Sarri has reportedly been offered a two-year deal worth around £2.5million a season.
And Italian radio station Radiosei say Lazio are in "advanced talks" as they hope to "close out" Sarri's appointment within 48 hours.
The ex-Napoli manager has been jobless since Juventus sacked him last August following 14 months in charge.
Juve's Champions League last-16 exit to Lyon proved costly for the 62-year-old Italian.
Radiosei suggest Lazio will not raise their pay offer to Sarri.
But there are potential add-ons – depending on qualification for Europe and winning Serie A.
It's also claimed Lazio are monitoring other options, including meeting with former Porto coach Vitor Pereira.
Reports in Italy also say Sarri was interesting Tottenham and Turkish clubs but prefers to stay in his home country.
