Monday morning reports suggest that Lazio’s captain, Ciro Immobile, might reconsider offers to move to Saudi Arabia in the upcoming summer, although his primary aim presently centers on reclaiming Champions League football with the Biancocelesti.
Immobile attracted interest from various parties in the Middle East during the summer transfer window but chose to remain in Rome with Lazio for the 2023-24 season.
Recent indications imply that the interest from Saudi Arabia persists, despite the absence of official offers during the January transfer window.
According to both Calciomercato.com and Il Corriere dello Sport, Immobile could revisit these offers if they resurface during the summer.
It is understood that Immobile currently earns approximately €4m per season at the Stadio Olimpico, but clubs such as Al Shabab and Al Wheda could propose a two-year contract totaling €18m, significantly exceeding what the 33-year-old would earn during the remaining two years of his Lazio contract, which expires in the summer of 2026.
Calciomercato suggests that if a similar offer is presented this summer, it would pose a considerable challenge for Immobile to decline.
Nevertheless, Immobile’s current focus remains on his Lazio career.
He achieved his 200th Serie A goal against Cagliari on Saturday and still harbors two significant goals for the remainder of the 2023-24 season: securing a Serie A top-four finish and earning a place in Luciano Spalletti’s Italy squad for the Euro 2024 tournament in Germany.
This season he played in total 6 times for 372 minutes for Champions League.
Ciro Immobile scored 3 goals for Lazio. He procured no assists. He received 1 yellow card and no red cards.
