La Gazzetta dello Sport hone in on the Lazio mercato. In addition to the now well-documented Granqvist-Carrizo swap, the newspaper reports the Lazio have a keen into in Reto Ziegler and Michele Pazienza with Standard Liege's left-back Sebastien Pocognoli as the back-up should a swoop for Ziegler fail. The newspaper also focus heavily on this evening's encounter with Salernitana and the various sub-plots, including Lotito's decision to loan out Lazio's youngsters to the the Lega Pro outfit.

Never have stories about the youth setup at Lazio been so popular with the media. The latest story is that Inter Milan have poached another under-18 starlet from Lazio - Vincenzo Tommasone.

There is a new name to add to the list of rumours; Royston Drenthe. The Dutch midfielder was a target for Lazio when at Real Madrid and having spent a season with Everton, the winger has found himself surplus to requirements. His attitude is his greatest weakness - he threatened to take Feyenoord to court if they blocked his switch to Real Madrid, he went on strike while at Hercules and his career at Everton ended when he failed to turn up for training on time. Price is seemingly the key factor for Lazio nowadays and as Drenthe is available for free, money is not a concern.

These are translations of rumours gathered by "oizaL" of biancocelesti.org.
