Lazio infamously missed out on David Silva who had verbally agreed to join the Italian side before changing his mind last-minute to join Real Sociedad.
The Italian team however didn't stop looking at available players in the Premier League and moved onto the Manchester United midfielder.
Fabrizio Romano and Gianluca Di Marzio have since confirmed the news, tweeting out that Lazio are indeed interested and are speeding up negotiations for Pereira.
