A meeting between Claudio Lotito and Parma's Sporting Director, Pietro Leonardi has fuelled much speculation this morning about the future of players from both sides. From a laziale perspective, it is the rumour that Sergio Floccari may be en route to Parma that has surprised, excited and disappointed many, depending on the individuals perspective. However, Leonardi was quick to play down the speculation stating that while Parma would be interested if Lazio was keen to sell, the possibility had not been discussed. Parma's interest in Floccari dates back as far as 2009 and it is common knowledge in Serie A that Lazio simply outbidded the club from Emilio-Romagna for the striker. Nevertheless, many sources have reported that Lazio will not make Miroslav Klose's deal official until Floccari moves on. As time goes by, this looks less and less likely to be the case.

Leonardi also rubbished rumours that Lazio were keen on midfielders Daniele Galloppa and Blerim Dzemaili.

This morning however, Corriere dello Sport report that Cristian Zaccardo is on the Lazio radar as a possible replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner who continues to be at the heart of Juventus' transfer plans. The World Cup winning right-back is said to have been purchased by Parma at the figure of four million and Lazio may have to meet that sum before they can talk to the ex-Palermo player.
