In today’s papers, it is all about potential transfers for Lazio this summer. The action so far is nonexistent, but as the ritiro has been ongoing the desire to bring some reinforcements has been built up. Il Tempo focuses on Xandao, a name that has travelled all papers by now. The article puts out the details left to come to a conclusion on, as representatives of the player (who is owned by a company at this point and not by any club) meets with Lazio representatives. The sum that is said to be differing between what is asked and what is offered is around 500.000 Euro.
La Repubblica focuses on Sergio Floccari. Many clubs seem to be interested in the player, but the price tag seems to be what is keeping the most interested party, Torino, away right now. The negotiations with Pescara for Foggia, Floccari and Carrizo ended without any positive outcome, so Lotito is now working to find new addresses for the player.
La Gazzetta Dello Sport also mentions the Torino – Floccari transfer and adds Alfaro to the list of players not in the plans of coach Petkovic. Earlier Chievo had been rumoured as interested in the Uruguayan, but now it seems as Bologna has emerged as the most interested side. In the case of Alfaro only a loan deal is being discussed, while Floccari should be leaving on a permanent basis. On a non-football related note, the paper has tracked down Miroslav Klose and has a picture of the still on vacation striker as he has captured a big carp at his family vaction, this time close to Venice.
Finally, Corriere Dello Sport. The paper has plenty of articles on Lazio this morning, including potential tactical dispositions for the game this evening. Lazio will field the revitalized Zarate it is stated, a player that is apparently getting ready to sit down and discuss a new contract with Lotito. Also this paper focuses on the potential Floccari departure, stating this move would be the key to lure Peluso to Lazio as the money Lazio could get in a deal for the forward could be reinvested in Atalanta’s Peluso.
