Lazio Reprise Chasing Out-of-Contract Japanese Star

Lazio denied tensions between Maurizio Sarri and Claudio Lotito with a statement, but they must accelerate in the transfer to appease the gaffer. They resumed talking with Daichi Kamada, who’s still a free agent, Alfredo Pedullà relays.

The Biancocelesti accepted the requests of the Japanese’s camp on wages and commissions. He’d earn €4M plus add-ons if he joined. The ball is in his court considering how his summer has gone. He has been very close to signing Milan and Atletico Madrid.

Lazio rekindled their interest in Kamada also because they will miss out on Djibril Sow, Marca reports. They had reached an agreement with Eintracht Frankfurt, but he will transfer to Sevilla. Sarri had temporarily halted the acquisition to ask the president for clarifications. Arsen Zakharyan will also head elsewhere, director Angelo Fabiani confirmed to Corriere dello Sport.

The Biancocelesti are expected to bring in two pieces at the position and will bid for Samuele Ricci again. They are also in the hunt for a left-back, as Luca Pellegrini is unlikely to return. They are keeping tabs on Mario Rui, who’s in talks to extend his Napoli contract. Cremonese’s Emanuele Valeri and Verona’s Josh Doig are on their radar too.

Our Take on Lazio and Kamada

There’s no denying his caliber, but the fit in their scheme and especially midfield is rather dubious.
