Inzaghi replacing Cisse at Lazio?

There are shock reports in Italy that Lazio could hand Djibril Cissè over to QPR so they can bring in veteran Pippo Inzaghi from Milan.

The Biancocelesti signed Cissè over the summer, but the midweek Coppa Italia goal was his first since September.

Even though the longest drought of his professional career has ended, the Frenchman is still considered a flop at the Olimpico.

There are growing rumours that Cissè will be heading to the Premier League for Queens Park Rangers.

The most surprising aspect of the story comes from the Gazzetta dello Sport this morning, who claim Lazio’s replacement for Cissè is going to be Inzaghi.

The 37-year-old hitman has barely set foot on the field for Milan this season and has hinted he could walk away mid-season in order to play more regularly.

Parma and Novara have been mentioned as possible destinations, but Lazio would give Inzaghi the chance to continue his goal-scoring exploits in Europe. He'd also be the second Inzaghi for the club, as younger brother Simone used to play for the Biancocelesti.
