Corriere dello Sport have an article on Lazio's mercato objectives. For the defence, they claim Xandao is the clear favourite for the centre-back role while Lotito and Tare are likely to meet Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini regarding Federico Balzaretti. There are couple of new rumours doing the rounds today - Emiliano Alfaro is said to be wanted by Chievo Verona while Modena are eyeing up Tommaso Ceccarelli on loan.

It has also emerged that Miroslav Klose is back in Rome. He is set to join the squad for the Fiuggi training camp at the end of the month but there is speculation he may choose to return earlier to get a feel for Petkovic's new Lazio.

Gazzetta dello Sport discuss Ederson's injury as reported by yesterday. Likewise, they estimate that he will be out for around three weeks. Tdoday is the key - if he feels more pain beyond today he wil need to be re-checked for greater damage. Ederson was very concerned about the injury having been ruled out for so much of last season with his knee.

The newpaper also reports on Lazio's efforts to sign Xandao. They states that Sporting Lisbon have declined making a bid due to financial difficulties which leaves Lazio as the frontrunner. 2 million is what is believed to have been offered - Desportivo Brasil have a 3 million asking price.

In other news, Burak Yilmaz has admitted that he signed a preliminary contract agreement with Lazio.

Il Tempo focus on today's training regime - a mountain climb up Mount Agudo. It will be a daunting task for the players but no so for the staff, who will take a cable car. There is an ambition to allow Olimpia to fly from the top of the mountain today but Lazio will have to ensure that it is safe for her as there are other eagles present.
