It was thought Liverpool were closing to agreeing a part exchange deal for the player during the January transfer window, with Fabio Borini returning to the Italian capital.
Ultimately, the move never reached a conclusion with Lazio to hold on the 22-year-old to help in their push for a Champions League spot, but Liverpool have now been informed that Lazio would be prepared to talk again in the summer.
The news has also piqued the interest of West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, who is keen to bolster his midfield after a strong 2014/15 season.
The asking price has been set at £7.1 million.
