Corriere dello Sport says while the two teams will meet on Sunday, management have been locked in discussions over several potential transfer deals.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito remains a big fan of Claudio Marchisio, currently with Empoli, and is also keen on Davide Lanzafame, who is currently with Bari on-loan. Lazio coach Delio Rossi, meanwhile, would welcome the arrival of Juve attacking midfielder Rafaelle Palladino.

Juve coach Claudio Ranieri, in contrast, is keen to sign permanently on-loan Lazio defender Guglielmo Stendardo - but not for the £8 million Lotito has quoted. Ranieri is also an admirer of Stefano Mauri.
