Representatives from Galatasaray are said to be in Rome to discuss the respective deals for Albanian midfielder Lorik Cana and Uruguayan international Fernando Muslera.

A deal for Cana was said to be complete a couple of weeks ago but revelations from Muslera's agent that the Lazio icon was wanting a move has coincided with a delay in the Cana deal. As a result, the two clubs are now renegotiating terms in light of the developing situation. Apparently everything will become clear within two weeks.

Meanwhile, Lotito is looking at possible replacements for Stephan Lichtsteiner who is in pole position for a transfer to Juventus. Abdoulaye Konko of Genoa is the frontrunner but speculation this morning suggests that Igli Tare is working on snatching Cristian Sapunaru from FC Porto.

The Lichtsteiner transfer is by no means a certainty. Palermo claimed yesterday that the Old Lady are also interested in Mattia Cassani and that the Sicilians are prepared to listen to any offers that are made.

Mimmo Malfitano, a reporter at Gazzetta dello Sport and an expert on Napoli believes that Fabiano Santacroce could leave Naples this summer and that Lazio is a likely destination. There are also reports that Napoli will enter the race for Lyon midfielder Miralem Pjanic as Marek Hamsik looks set for a move to Milan.
