Corriere dello Sport are beginning to sound like a broken record as they continue to speculate on possible defensive reinforcements. Apparently Claudio Lotito is delaying matters on Xandao, and he may look into the possibility of signing an old target from Brazil, Humberto Rever. Rever was linked strongly to Lazio in 2009 and the newspaper speculates that his time may come three years later. They suggest the left-back search is fixated upon Davide Santon of Newcastle United although Simon Poulsen is now available and Luca Antonelli, also a previous target, may be up for sale given the uncertainty surrounding Genoa.

With the mercato becoming a repetitive topic for journalists, the focus is very much on the Fiuggi ritiro with Eddy Onazi making the headlines again today with an assured performance against Nuovo Circe last night. You can read more on that on our homepage. 

The only other tasty rumour out there today involves Chievo Verona, who have expressed an interest in Emiliano Alfaro, who has been quite lively in pre-season training. Il Tempo believe that some type of exchange may occur involving the Uruguayan forward and the self-proclaimed laziale, Perparim Hetemaj. The Finnish midfielder is said to be on our shortlist and would give Lazio more protection in the centre of the park as Cristian Brocchi looks set to be out to October at least through injury.
