Wigan Athletic could face losing Franco Di Santo this summer with Italian sides Lazio and Bologna keeping a close eye on his situation, according to The Sun.

The 24-year-old is out of contract next month and so far the club have failed to tie him down to a new deal after negotiations to secure himself a three-year deal at the DW Stadium have stalled.

However, it would pay for the club to hurry negotiations along with news coming from Italy that Serie A sides Lazio and Bologna are keeping a close watch on the Argentine with intentions to pounce should negotiations break down completely, or worse, Wigan finally succumb to relegation.

A source close to Di Santo confirmed that there is significant interest in the player saying: “It is true there is interest in Franco.”

“But he wants to wait until the end of season and see where Wigan are before deciding what to do next.”

The former Chelsea man has bagged just five goals in 31 games this term, and though he has always been far from prolific his performances have become more mature and all rounded with him also picking up five assists. He has three caps with the Argentine national team, all of which have come within the previous eight months.
