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.
