After a quiet week on the news front, some interesting stories have emerged in the newspapers today. Corriere dello Sport report that Lazio may exchange Libor Kozak with Gonzalo Bergessio of Catania. Bergessio was a shining light in Catania's incredible Serie A campaign last season but Catania recognise that at 29 and with two years remaining on his current deal, Bergessio's future may lie elsewhere at a decent price. Catania are considering Libor Kozak as a potential replacement which makes a swap possible. It is rumoured that Lotito is also keen to sell Kozak at the right price but will only negotiate a sale and only at the right price. It is not clear if Bergessio is an attractive option but it is believed that Lazio were hoping to replace Kozak with a player of a similar age.

Following up on Radu's injury, which was reported by LazioLand.com yesterday, the Romanian defender was sent to hospital following a collision with Klose. He took an elbow to the chin and required three sttiches but thankfully, nothing more serious. Meanwhile, La Repubblica report that Biglia is on course to make the Supercoppa squad. Biglia was one of many Lazio players who was given extra leave following an extended season with international duty and it appears he is in the best shape of the six. Onazi, Gonzalez, Hernanes and Candreva should be ready on time, but they face a race against the clock.

La Repubblica also report that Mustapha Seck has failed his medical. The Spanish-Senegalese defender who has arrived on a free transfer may have a heart condition according to the newspaper and further tests will be required. Meanwhile, CdS claim that Etrit Berisha's potential transfer to Lazio is complicated by the fact that he signed a deal with Chievo on 28 June before the Swedish transfer window had opened. He faces a ban for his actions.
