Cassani could join Lazio

Palermo have confirmed that they may be willing to sell Mattia Cassani amidst interest from Lazio.

The capital club have targeted the Italian international as a replacement for the Juventus-bound Stephan Lichtsteiner.

"I thought [Lazio President Claudio] Lotito was joking to start with, but, if he's serious then we will see," Rosanero chief Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Radio.

"I'll be having a meeting with Coach Stefano Pioli and my staff tomorrow night to evaluate everything," added Zamparini.

Lichtsteiner has Juve medical

Stephan Lichtsteiner is on the verge of becoming a Juventus player after he underwent his medical earlier today.

The right-back will join the Old Lady from Lazio after a fee of around €10m was agreed between the two parties.

The release clause in his Stadio Olimpico agreement was set at €12m.

The Swiss international is expected to put pen to paper on a four-year deal either later today or at some stage on Tuesday.

Lichtsteiner should net somewhere in the region of €2m a campaign from La Vecchia Signora.

Lazio can play at Stadio Olimpico

Just hours after a vicious war of words in which Lazio accused the CONI of “extortion,” it's confirmed they can use the Stadio Olimpico.

The battle has been raging for several months, as Biancocelesti President Claudio Lotito has refused to pay the outstanding €2m to the CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) for renting the Olimpico.

This is because Lotito maintains the contract, signed by a previous administration, needs to be renegotiated and threats to bar Lazio from using the stadium next season is tantamount to “extortion.”

Cassani now on Lazio radar

Lazio could target Mattia Cassani of Palermo after their move for Genoa's Abdoulay Konko stalled.

The Biancocelesti are looking for a new right-back as they are on the verge of selling Stephan Lichtsteiner to Juventus.

Konko was their preferred replacement for the Swiss international, but they have hit problems in their attempted swoop.

Although an agreement with Genoa over a transfer fee has been agreed, personal terms crucially haven't with the Marassi player.
