Lazio are closing in on Djibril Cissè, but Alexander Doni could ruin the Fernando Muslera-Lorik Cana swap with Galatasaray.
The Biancocelesti are very active on the transfer market after signing Miroslav Klose on a free transfer from Bayern Munich.
President Claudio Lotito pledged more experienced reinforcements and one of them looks to be French striker Cissè.
The former Liverpool, Sunderland and Marseille hitman is now plying his trade at Panathinaikos.
The Corriere dello Sport maintains Lazio are very close to a deal for Cissè worth €5m.
Meanwhile, the Gazzetta dello Sport suggests the exchange deal with Galatasaray is on the verge of collapse.
It was widely believed that Muslera would join the Turkish club in a straight swap for midfielder Cana.
However, rumours emerging from Turkey claim Lazio wanted Cana plus €2m, a figure that Galatasaray were unwilling to pay.
Instead, the club is turning its focus towards Roma goalkeeper Doni, who is also in negotiations with Liverpool and would be considerably cheaper.
