Santa Cruz 'can't wait' to join Lazio

Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz claims he can't wait to join Lazio, although a formal announcement confirming the deal has yet to arrive.

Lazio have been interested in the Paraguay international since the summer when a deal to sign him was called off at the last minute.

Edy Reja is keen to bring in a target man to give his side a chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

The Aquile currently lie second in Serie A, just three points behind League leaders Milan.

Quoted in La Repubblica, Santa Cruz said: "I am talking to Lazio and I can't wait to land in Italy and wear the blue and white shirt."
