The Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has said that the club attempted to bring the former defender Alessandro Nesta back to the club after the defender was released by AC Milan.

The Italian defender is regarded as one of the finest defenders in the world. He recently revealed that he would be leaving AC Milan after the end of his current contract. It is thought that the club did not want to extend his contract due to the injury concerns.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has said that he is extremely confident that star striker Miroslav Klose will continue his stay in Italy with the club.

German striker Miroslav Klose has been a huge success at Lazio this season. He has helped the club challenge for a Champions League spot for most of the campaign, although they failed to qualify at the last moment.

Inter Milan have said that they will be having discussions with Lazio over the potential permanent transfer of Argentine forward Mauro Zarate.

It was very much expected that Mauro Zarate would be returning to Lazio at the end of the season, but the arrival of youth team coach Andrea Stramaccioni to the Inter Milan hot seat has changed the situations dramatically.

Lazio coach Edy Reja has said that he is extremely angry and disappointed at the fact that his side were not able to see out the match against Lecce during the weekend.

Lazio dropped two points after drawing the match 1-1, but they could have easily taken all three points had it not been for the late equaliser from Lecce.

SS Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma is aware of the threat posed by the AS Roma team that has been out of form for quite some time and he is afraid that they might just pick the derby match against their city rivals to come back to form. It is this backlash that worries Ledesma, one of the key figures in The Blues lineup this season, who are currently sitting on third position in the Italian League standings, seven points ahead of their city rivals.

And Ledesma knows that a victory against The Wolves is more than certain to qualify them for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

QPR have completed the signing of Lazio striker Djibril Cisse on the final day of the January transfer window.

Djibril Cisse decided to leave Lazio after struggling for both form and fitness during the first half of the season, and has signed a two and half year deal with QPR.

The move comes as a major announcement for QPR given that they now have the ability to attract some of the best quality players, who would have not otherwise come without the finances at the disposal of QPR.

Italian club Lazio could be interested in swapping former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse for Stuttgart midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic.

Djibril Cisse arrived with a lot of fanfare in the summer for about € 6 million, but he has struggled to settle in Italy. So far, he has scored only one goal in the league for Lazio, while his total goal tally stands at four. Hence, it is thought that Lazio are prepared to cut their losses by swapping the striker for a midfielder from Stuttgart.

Simone Pepe scored a vital goal for Juventus, as they managed to beat Lazio 1-0 to go top of the table. The important victory gives a much-needed breathing space for Juventus between them and Lazio.

Lazio were seen as one of the sides expected to challenge Juventus at the top of the table, but this defeat now means that they are three points behind Juventus having played a game more, effectively putting them six points behind Juventus - which is a massive difference to make up going into the rest of the season.

Fresh from being on tour with Brazil's national team, Hernanes is keen to make sure he makes as big an impression on Serie A as he did do in the Brazilian league.

Now on his second season in Italian football, Hernanes reckons that Lazio have a chance to winning Lo Scudetto, and that the Bianocelesti are genuine title-challengers.

Lazio are interested in signing Djibril Cisse from Marseille in a highly anticipated move. Cisse is under contract until the summer of 2013, but he is reported to be one of the highest earners and Panathinaikos are willing to listen to offers.

Lazio are interested, however, they would only have room if the likes of rumoured Parma target Sergio Floccari were to leave Rome.

"He will only arrive if one of our strikers leaves," Lazio president Claudio Lotito told Corriere dello Sport.

"We have seven strikers in our team so he would be a replacement if one of them leaves."
