They claim the Magpies have identified the Albania international as a key target and will make a bid for the 24-year-old.
Newcastle could make the keeper their first signing of the window, they are the only team in the Premier League yet to sign a player this summer.
Meanwhile, The Northern Echo are reporting striker Joselu is about to sign for Alaves.
Strakosha is valued at £18million by Transfermarkt but still has three years remaining on his current contract in the Italian capital. Last season he managed 10 clean sheets in his 35 Serie A matches.
Calciomercato.com claim that Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito values Strakosha at €50 million (£44.56million).
The Newcastle supporters do not believe they will see the club spending that much money on a player under the current regime.
Some took to Twitter to share their views on the news linking the keeper to the club, with many feeling confused about the club signing players in positions that are well stocked.
#NUFC have been helped by the sale of £30m Ayoze Perez and “can afford” Thomas Strakosha at around the same price.
Lazio’s Director of Football met with agent Kia Joorabchian in London to likely discuss the potential transfer. [Il Tempo] pic.twitter.com/8v5gCUQ41j

We don’t need a goaltender.
We need a strikeforce!!

Plan to play with two keepers and no forwards is revolutionary

Never in a million years would we pay more than 10m for a keeper when we haven’t spent more than 16m on a striker.

I appreciate i will just be echoing the thoughts/tweets of most #nufc fans on here but why on earth would we spend that kind of money on a goalkeeper when we have a good one already? Especially since we don’t actually own a striker with any decent record in the premier league!

Shouldn’t we use that money to oh I don’t know replace Rondon and/or Perez rather than a keeper whilst we still have Dubravka

Would signing him imply Dubravka’s the next one out the door?

Why would we spend the money we got for a winger on a goalkeeper that we don’t need and is too good for our team.

Another keeper? Erm NO…..
