Lotito Shoots Down Saudi Rumours Concerning Immobile

Ciro Immobile has some suitors in Saudi Arabia, but their interest hasn’t turned into an official offer yet. Moreover, they’ll have to convince president Claudio Lotito, who seems more determined to keep the captain than Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to Sky, only a €30/35M bid and the striker pushing to depart could sway the Biancocelesti president. He’s set to reach the team’s pre-season retreat in Auronzo di Cadore for in-person conversations shortly.

Lotito addressed the buzz to Corriere dello Sport.

“Lazio never put Immobile for sale, and I haven’t received any proposal.”

The two have a powerful bond. The striker has looked more serene as of late amid the fans’ exhortations to stay put in the Italian capital. He’s under contract until 2026 and earns around €4M per year.

Our Take on Immobile, Lazio, and Saudi Arabia

If the numbers get crazy, it makes more sense to sell a veteran who’s breaking down physically and is at the twilight of his career than to be stubborn notwithstanding his sentimental value. Despite the strong rebuttal by the patron, it’s something to keep an eye on should the suitors decide to pursue him with increasingly large bids as they have done with other targets.
