Lazio: 'We're ready for Ziegler'

Now that Milan have baulked at the price for Reto Ziegler, Lazio President Claudio Lotito reveals “we're ready if Sampdoria want to sell.”

The full-back had been on the verge of a transfer to San Siro, but on Friday Milan chief Adriano Galliani confessed there would be no deal unless the price-tag dropped considerably.

It has allowed Lazio back into the race for the Swiss international.

“Ziegler is a perfect match for Stephan Lichtsteiner and they play together in the Swiss national team,” said Biancocelesti President Lotito.

“This is an advantage for both the players and the team. However, current Ziegler is a Sampdoria player.

“It is our general policy not to make moves against the desire of the club. If Sampdoria want to sell, then we are ready, otherwise he can stay there.”

The reports suggest Lazio could include Pasquale Foggia as part of an exchange for Ziegler.

“There are many options when it comes to exchanges, but we haven't discussed it yet.”
