Kozak - Lazio - Panathinaikos continue to take steps forward in an attempt to bring striker to the Stadium of Light.

The Czech international has been a sought after commodity this summer and it appears as though the Black Cats are the latest club to attempt to lure him away from the Stadio Olimpico.

The Daily Mail report that former Lazio legend and current Sunderland manager is ready to make €4.5 million bid to sign the former Opava player.

Kozak is coming off a disappointing Serie A campaign last season where he failed to score in 18 league appearances for the Biancocelesti last season.

However, he did find success in the Europa League where he finished as top scorer in the competition with eight goals.

Adriano Boin

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed. Feel free to add me on Twitter to talk about Inter, Italy or calcio in general @Boin44
