French striker Djibril Cisse seems to be a step closer to Lazio following the meeting yesterday between the player's agent and Claudio Lotito. Il Corriere dello Sport understands that Lotito improved his contract offer to 2.1 million Euros a season in a four year offer. The striker had requested 3 million a year and the decision is now in the hands of the player.

Should the Cisse transfer fall through, it has been reported that Lazio will try for Floro Flores. The striker spoke to Radio Mana Mana about the rumour: "For me, Lazio would be an honour. I don't know what the situation is with Lazio, when I talk to my agent he doesn't go into detail unless the deal is at a decisive stage. In the event that a deal can be made with Lazio, it would an honour for me. My name is matched with a great team and it's a pleasure. It's an important place and has great fans".

Antonio was asked about the level of competiton at Lazio and whether it was an issue: "It would not be a problem for me as you have to gamble for a starting spot in every team. With the confidence of the coach in a team that can boast the support of Zarate, Klose, Floccari and Sculli, the gratification would be incredible".

This may not be all for Lazio this summer as following the imminent departure of Lichtsteiner for 10 million and the fact Lazio are set to receive 8.5 million for Kolarov on the 23rd July, the biancoceleste still have some money in the bank, and the agent of Palermo's Mattia Cassani has confirmed that Lazio have approached him regarding the defender.
