Lazio have played down speculation linking Cesar with Internazionale.Lazio president Claudio Lotito has played down speculation linking Cesar with Internazionale.
Inter have been chasing Cesar since last summer and are keen to bring him to the Giuseppe Meazza.
Both clubs have held talks over the Brazilian, but Lotito insists a deal is far from complete.
"Cesar? I haven't had direct contacts with Internazionale," said Lotito.
"I know there has been talks between the two clubs' sporting directors.
"I haven't received sensational proposals and so I don't think there will be news."
Lazio's sporting director Gabriele Martino remains hopeful Cesar will stay at the capital club.
"Let's hope Cesar will stay, although Inter would like that he would go there," said Martino.
"The proposals arrived until now would have to be a little improved and to let him go, we want a big effort from a big club like Inter.
"I think the most important market coup will be made by Inter. It is known to everyone that Inter want a quality player for their left wing."
Lotito also revealed that the club are closing in on the signature of Brescia defender Maurizio Domizzi.
"Domizzi's arrival? I must make the point of the situation with my sporting director and we will find the ideal solution," added Lotito.
