Gazzetta dello Sport discuss a wide range of Lazio-related topics today. They speak about Zarate's impressive performance in training yesterday, Olimpia going missing, Tare and Petkovic's possible market strategy, the manager's midfield dilemma and last but by no means least, transfer rumours. Zandao and Guidetti are said to be the focus of our attention now while we line up alternatives for left-back after Federico Balzaretti appeared to definitvely say no. Pablo Cáceres of Mallorca is one option and Simon Poulsen of AZ is the other.

Tuttosport also name Simon Poulsen as the alternative to Balzaretti although they feel Atalanta's Peluso is probably the favourite. They also believe Xandao is a matter of when, not if and that the contract negotiation for Zarate will look to extend his deal by two years in 2016 but to cut his salary in half so Lazio essentially pay nothing more to keep Mauro for an additional two seasons. Tuttosport say the club want to cash in on Floccari and loan Alfaro and the bring in another striker but Sergio is not keen to leave.

Il Tempo focus on Lazio's inability to sign their transfer targets this summer as well as Olimpia's great escape. In actual fact, Olimpia is the talk of all the other reporters who seem to have either run out of rumours or they are taking a break from the transfer scene.
