Roma Wait in the Wings for Possible Crosstown Mugging

Roma have joined the list of teams watching closely what’s going on between Lazio and Daichi Kamada, who’s been very solid with Igor Tudor at the helm. The player controls his future. He’ll become a free agent if he doesn’t pick up a multi-year option to re-up, Corriere della Sera reported (via Goal).

There’s also a third way, as the parties could negotiate a new deal. He has made €3M this season and would like a €500k bump. The Biancocelesti would get more certainties about the future in return.

Lazio would gladly avoid that as, if they handed Kamada a fresh contract, they’d lose the fiscal benefits of the ‘Decreto Crescita.’ He has started in eight consecutive matches. New Roma director Florent Ghisolfi is reportedly a fan. The 27-year-old commented to SportsHachi lately (via Fantacalcio).

“I’m truly happy to be finally able to help the team. I played in this system in Germany, so I’m comfortable. The whole squad is improving. I’ve been linked to a few clubs already, but I haven’t decided. I perceive the trust of the coach now. I think he suits me from many points of view.”

Our Take on Kamada, Lazio, and Roma

The Biancocelesti really backed themselves into a corner with that contract, and who would have thought he would be holding the knife’s edge just a few months ago. They better do what they need to keep him. He’s not a great tactical fit for the Giallorossi on paper.
