Lazio Latest Serie A Team to Pass on Signing Kamada

Lazio met with Daichi Kamada Tuesday before sealing the deal to onboard Djibril Sow. The two weren’t mutually exclusive, but the Biancocelesti are unlikely to keep pursuing the Japanese, Alfredo Pedullà informs.

His agent asked for rich wages, €4.5/5M per year, and the player himself is waiting for other teams. Atletico Madrid are top of the list in his mind. As was the case with Milan, he had come to terms with them, but Los Colchoneros didn’t finalize the signing.

Rather than signing Kamada, Lazio are close to Arsen Zakharyan. They had been tracking him for a while because they were planning to sell Toma Basic. The departure of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic added more urgency.

While Piotr Zielinski is likely to renew with Napoli, the Biancocelesti won’t go after new targets until he does it officially, as Maurizio Sarri clearly wants him.

Our Take on Lazio and Kamada

He’s not really a bargain at those figures, plus the fit in a midfield that already features Luis Alberto is dubious since it’d struggle defensively. Zakharyan would come in as a prospect. It’s more likely than not that they will sign three players and that the right name to succeed the Sergeant hasn’t come up yet.
