Not much new on the transfer front according to il Corriere dello Sport. They predict that Lazio may start negotiations for Davide Santon as Petkovic will like his versatility as he can play at left and right back. They also speculate Belgian Sebastien Pocognoli of AZ Alkmaar could be of interest. The Roman newspaper also discuss what Petkovic will try tonight in the friendly with San Felice Circeo at Fiuggi, believing that Hernanes will play as 'regista'. Expect this line-up accorindg to il Corriere:

LAZIO (4-4-2): Marchetti; Konko, Biava, Dias, Zauri; Candreva, Cana, Hernanes, Lulic; Floccari, Zarate.

La Gazzetta dello Sport are also discussing what tactics Petkovic will settle on. They believe that he will try 4-2-3-1 and that where Hernanes will play is a mystery. They also speculate that now Lo Monaco has left Genoa, it will lead to many transfers between 'old friends' Lotito and Preziosi, starting with Giandomenico Mesto as a solution for defence. Also Lotito is furoius at being used as 'bait' for Roma in the battle for Balzaretti. It has come out that Lotito never even spoke to Zamparini about the player and that the Palermo president told the media this to force the hand of Roma.
