  12/06/2013: Udinese want Kozak for Candreva

Corriere dello Sport have confirmed a rumour that has been doing the rounds for the last few weeks - Udinese do indeed want Libor Kozak in exchange for 50% of Antonio Candreva's rights.

Antonio Candreva has spent the last 18 months on loan at Lazio, and Claudio Lotito has an option to buy 50% of Candreva's rights for 1.7 million. That option expires on the 20th June and Lotito and Udinese are trying to negotiate a deal that will see Candreva remain at Lazio for the foreseeable future.

Udinese are asking for Libor Kozak to be included in that deal. Kozak is not entirely happy at Lazio, feeling that he needs more playing time for the sake of his career and the Czech striker made it clear in February that he was disappointed with Lotito's decision to reject a 6 million bid from Dinamo Moscow. 

Ogenyi Onazi was also mentioned in discussion between the two clubs, but Lotito is apparently reluctant to let the Nigerian youngster go. Onazi took to his Facebook account last week to dismiss rumours about him wanting a move away from the capital club.

In other news, Diego Novaretti looks set to be unveiled as a Lazio player later today. Corriere dello Sport believe that neither Andre Dias or Michael Ciani's future is certain at Lazio and that if either of them are to leave, Lazio will enter the market for another centre-back.
