Lazio strike Santa Cruz loan deal

Roque Santa Cruz is expected to join Lazio on loan from Manchester City in the next few days.

The striker had already been very close to this transfer during the summer, but negotiations collapsed at the last minute.

Now there are numerous reports in Italy and England that the 29-year-old striker will arrive at the Stadio Olimpico before 2010 is out.

The deal would see Lazio pay €300,000 for a six-month loan and the option to buy at the end of the season for €3m.

Miroslav Klose has fuelled reports of a January switch to Lazio. “I've been following their progress and won't deny I'd love to play there.”

The German international's contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of the season and he could well push for an early departure worth €4m.

“I know that I will almost certainly leave Bayern at the end of the season,” said the 32-year-old centre-forward.

Tacticians get touchline ban

Lecce Coach Gigi De Canio and Lazio boss Edy Reja receive touchline bans for dissent, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended for Milan.

Serie A is on its winter break, but will return on January 6 with Week 18.

Touchline bans mean both Lazio's Reja and Lecce's De Canio will be in the stands for their games after protesting against the referees.

Milan face Cagliari without star striker Ibrahimovic, who was booked in the 1-0 home defeat to Roma.

Juventus have two players suspended, Leonardo Bonucci and Manuel Giandonato.

Lotito: 'Reja key to Lazio success'

Lazio are flying high in second place and President Claudio Lotito gives all the credit to one man. “Edy Reja has an incredible rapport with the players.”

The Coach was brought in part-way through last season and was expected to target mid-table, but instead is challenging for the Scudetto.

“In 2010 we found the calm, balance, united locker room and a Coach who has been able to instil an incredible rapport with the players,” said President Lotito.

Reja: Scudetto is a four-horse race

Edy Reja is of the opinion that this season in Serie A is a four-horse race for the Scudetto, although one that oddly doesn't yet include Lazio and Napoli.

The Aquile's 3-2 victory over Udinese on Sunday keeps Lazio in joint second place with Napoli, just three points behind League leaders Milan.

Interviewed on Radio Anch'io Lo Sport, Reja said: "We are up there. We have shown a consistency in our results. There is still a bitter taste in our mouths for the defeat to Juve.

Milan are superior, says Hernanes

Lazio midfield playmaker Hernanes believes Milan are superior to his side, even though just three points separate the two title rivals in the table.

The Aquile's 3-2 victory over Udinese on Sunday means they are still hanging on to the League leaders' coat tails going into the annual winter break.

"I don't know which team is favourite for the Scudetto, but of course I remain very impressed by Lazio," Hernanes explained.

"Sure Milan have shown themselves to be superior. They have players of a great level.

Guidolin's dream game against Lazio

Francesco Guidolin reveals “the dream performance” that Udinese need to beat Lazio in the lunchtime kick-off.

“Playing at this hour isn't going to be a drama. We just need to wake up a bit earlier and get ourselves into gear in time,” he said of the 11.30 UK time start.

“Lazio have many players of pure quality, but it is up to us to try to limit them and go on the counter-attack often. That is the dream performance.

“We know that we can keep the tempo up, as physically we are in great shape.”
