Gazzetta dello Sport report on Sani Emmanuel, Enrico Zampa and on Tommaso Ceccarelli's proposed loan deals to Bari. With many of Lazio's Primavera stars reaching the age where they are no longer eligible to play in the youth team, the club have no choice but to send them elsewhere in order to trim down the squad for Vladimir Petkovic. These luck three are set to get their chance in Serie B and it will be a second chance for Ceccarelli, who had a very unfortunate spell at Juve Stabia in the latter part of the season just gone.

The man attracting all the interest is, surprisingly, Libor Kozak. His impressive goal record for Lazio has not gone unnoticed and there are a host of Serie A relegation battlers lining up to secure his services should the club decide to loan him or more. Coming in the other direction could be Giampaolo Pazzini - the club are said to have enquired about his availability following his media outburst earlier in the week - but they also claim that Pazzini has no interest in coming to Lazio. The transfer talk turns to Balzaretti. In 48 hours, Balzaretti's future with Palermo will be decided and should he decide to move, Zamparini is likely to sell to the highest bidder. There are alternatives though - Matías Abero's name has been in the newspapers regularly this week as has the significantly more expensive Davide Santon but Corriere dello Sport reignite the Federico Peluso rumour. Peluso, currently at Atalanta, grew up at Lazio and he may be the easiest to secure given the club from Bergamo's interest in Sergio Floccari.

Corriere della Sera and Il Tempo both question Ledesma's status in the squad. Petkovic tested the combination of Cana and Hernanes earlier this week and even in a midfield of three, it has been suggested that Lulic could keep Ledesma on the bench. There is not much speculation elsewhere today - it seems the priority is Balzaretti and the situation will not be resolved until the beginning of next week.
