Lazio have switched their attentions to Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz after giving up on Juventus' David Trezeguet. Il Corriere dello Sport reports that Lazio have reached an agreement with City based on a loan with the option to buy the player at €8 million [£6.56m] when the deal expires.

Santa Cruz earns around €2m [£1.64m] per annum but Lazio want City to cover some of that during the loan - a detail that has held up the move, allowing Fiorentina and Newcastle United the chance to move into the equation.

Nevertheless, Claudio Lotito is being pressured by Edy Reja who wants the striker to come in. David Trezeguet was linked with the Romans after his agent Antonio Caliendo confirmed that talks has started.

However, the Frenchman is being lured by Spanish outfit Hercules, leaving Lazio to upscale their efforts for Santa Cruz.?
