Il Corriere dello Sport open with Lotito's presence in Auronzo and that Petkovic spent a lengthy time talking to him and Tare as they try to strategise the mercato for August. The friendly with Siena last night highlighted the priority for another defender - a Cb and a left-back to compete with Radu. The usual names are still there but Xandao remains the favourite although there are issues involving Sporting Lisbon who still claim to have an option on the player. Man City target STefan Savic is a new name thrown into the mix.

La Gazzetta dello Sport has highlighted the Coppa Italia draw. Lazio enter the competition in the last sixteen and could meet Parma in the quarter finals. If they progress they are likely to meet either Juventus or Milan in the semi final.

The friendly has been the vast majority of the talking points in the papers while il Corriere della Sera highlight that Lazio still struggle to score goals while Klose is absent. Despite the team playing very well, they should have hit the net on no less than 5 occasions only to lose 1-0.

Finally Il Tempo reiterate Torino's desire to sign Sergio Floccari, while Lotito will use the funds to sign Atalanta's Peluso.
