Milan and Napoli Pursuing Eintracht Ace on His Way Out

Daichi Kamada has decided to leave Eintracht Frankfurt on a free, and a bidding war quickly broke out, featuring Milan and Napoli among the suitors. The Rossoneri, in particular, have displayed major interest in onboarding the inventive midfielder.

According to Calciomercato, he’s keener on them than other teams. They moved early and had multiple meetings already. They reached an agreement in principle on a long-term contract with €3M wages with his entourage. On the other hand, they have yet to finalize their budget and technical plans for the future. Their uncertain Champions League qualification is a big factor.

On top of Milan and Napoli, Kamada is in the crosshairs of several other clubs. Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle, and Liverpool are in the running. According to the Japanese site Sakanowa (via Il Mattino), the Bundesliga outfit offered him a lucrative six-year deal. He’ll transfer on a Bosman move, but his agents demand €5M commissions, which could discourage the Partenopei.

The 26-year-old is having a career season. He has bagged 15 goals and provided 6 assists in 44 appearances across all competitions. He has hit the net 39 times in 176 matches since joining in 2019.

Our Take on Kamada, Milan, and Napoli

Both sides potentially need somebody in such role. The Azzurri due to Piotr Zielinski’s short-term contract, while the Rossoneri because they’ll have a tough time retaining Brahim Diaz from Real Madrid. The competition is stiff. The costs are never zero despite the formula, but he’d be a bargain given his effectiveness in recent years, versatility, and ample experience on the continental stage.
