The front page of Corriere dello Sport carries the headline: "Idea Lazio: Molinaro". The newspaper believe that the 2.5 million euro rated left-back, who spent a number of years at Juventus without much success wants to move back to Italy and that Lazio, having failed to capture Federico Balzaretti, are likely to sound him out. The newspaper also picks up on Il Tempo's rumour yesterday that an exchange with Chievo Verona may occur for Perparim Hetemaj and Emiliano Alfaro. Given Petkovic's admission that there are too many forwards at Lazio, the Uruguayan could be allowed to depart on loan with a right of redemption. The future of Sergio Floccari is set to be decided closer to the mercato deadline.

There are no other significant rumours in circulation although the Gonzalez to Fiorentina murmur is intensifying slowly. The media chooses to focus once again on the find of pre-season, Eddy Onazi. There are suggestions that the talented Nigerian midfielder is viewed as an alternative to Ledesma and in an interview, Giuseppe Biava has spoken highly of the youngster as well as Mobido Diakite'.

A few of the newspapers are also following the circumstances surrounding Breno. The deal could be back on as early as January as, hypothetically, the player could lodge an appeal in October which could prove to be successful at a later date. Probation is possible, if unlikely.
