  09/07/2012: A path for Pazzini
email print  
Is Giampaolo Pazzini trying to pave his way to Lazio?

The Inter Milan forward has told the media that he is no longer a part of the club's plans and that he is set to make a move away from Milan this summer. His former club Sampdoria are expected to enter the race, but with their sights set on the relatively expensive Maxi Lopez, Lazio may be tempted to table a bid for the once prolific centre-forward.

The Italian newspapers believe Lazio have no option but to turn to ex-candidates now that Yilmaz is 99% certain to move elsewhere. Nilmar and Maxi Lopez have both been mentioned, but Igli Tare is not convinced by the former and the race for the latter may be too advanced for Lazio to enter considering Petkovic has asked Tare to freeze negotations for players for the next fortnight.

That may lead Lazio to look at Pazzini, who should be available for a price similar to the figure placed on Yilmaz.
