Turkish international had reportedly been close to securing move to Italy.
Lazio are still hopeful that they can reach an agreement to sign Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz, while Aston Villa hope to seal a move for Libor Kozak.
The 28-year-old was reportedly close to swapping the Turkish capital for the Italian capital a few days ago, after a transfer fee was agreed between the two clubs.
The Biancocelesti are determined to bolster their attacking options in order to take the pressure off veteran Miroslav Klose, who has also hinted at a potential return to the Bundesliga at the end of the season when his contract expires.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, there is still no agreement to push the transfer through, with issues surrounding the bonuses involved in the Yilmaz deal and the payment methods.
Lazio president Claudio Lotito is still hopeful a deal can be reached, while the pink paper also suggest that the alternative will be Fabio Quagliarella from Juventus.
Meanwhile, the deal is likely to have a knock-on effect on Libor Kozak, who is seemingly on his way out of Rome with a fee of around €6m being agreed with Premier League side Aston Villa.
Gazzetta have reported that an agreement is close, and that the Czech striker will be officially announced as a Villa player by the end of the transfer deadline day.
It remains to be seen whether or not negotiations over Yilmaz delay the move, as Lotito could switch his attention to Quagliarella in order to hand coach Vladimir Petkovic options in attack.
