  28/05/2011: Contact for Klose

In the hunt for a top class striker, the names of Maxi Lopez, Gilardino and Klose have resonated most strongly, simply because Edy Reja has named them as targets. Yesterday, David Trezeguet's name was entered into the hat, although it must be said that it was his agent that did so, perhaps because his client will be playing in the Spanish second tier if he fails to find a new club. The 'genuine interest' in Trezeguet has set off alarm bells that Lotito might be about to seal a deal for a new forward along with the proposed moves of Lorik Cana and Senad Lulic.

Today, La Repubblica claim that is indeed the case and that the Lazio president made a contractual offer to the German international 10 days ago. Klose is already a free agent having been released by Bayern Munich and at 32 years of age, he should still have a few years to offer at the top level. Lotito would probably be anxious to close a deal for the striker as a failure to do so with Julio Cruz two summers ago cost Lazio dearly as the once prolific centre-forward found himself out of condition and unable to live up to his star billing.

With 61 international goals and 108 international caps, Miroslav's signing would send out a serious signal of intent. However, Laziali may worry about his lack of goals at club level with the striker having a mere 1-in-4 ratio in his 4-year spell with German giants, Bayern Munich.
