Lazio president Claudio Lotito has assured fans they will eventually sign Argentine goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo.

He said: "Lazio have an option to buy him, but for now he is still registered with River Plate. When the chance presents itself, we will bring him in. Will it be in January? I don't know, I'm not psychic."

Lotito also revealed: "We had a deal for Boca Juniors midfielder Sebastian Battaglia as well, but his wife did not want the transfer to go through."
