Not much in the way of transfer speculation in the papers today. La Repubblica note that Lazio remian in the market for a wing-back, a winger and a forward. With Empoli's Elseid Hysaj identified as the preferred wing-back and with Igli Tare set to commence negotiations today with Empoli, it appears that Ante Vukisic has emerged as the leading candidate for the striker berth. The Pescara forward, who managed a solitary goal in 19 Serie A appearances last season is said to have been specifically requested by Vladimir Petkovic and while Tare works on Hysaj, Lotito will work on Pescara. Given Pescara's relegation and their interest in Giuseppe Sculli, a transfer fee is likely to be low but a potential stumbling block is Vukisic's agent - Ulisse Savini, the same individual that manages Mobido Diakite' and Luis Peddo Cavanda and who Lotito and Tare have publicly criticised.

Both La Repubblica and
Corriere dello Sport focus on Hernanes' words following Brazil's Confederations Cup thrashing of Spain. Hernanes told the media:

"I see my career in two parts; before the Coppa Italia game between Lazio and Roma, and after. That cup enabled me to understand what it means to win something. Once you know how to play, you must learn how to win and the Confederations Cup has helped with the learning. I want to continue winning'.

Corriere dello Sport interpret this as his desire to remain at Lazio and win silverware, but La Repubblica now believe his departure this summer is now a case of when, not if.
