Immobile Could Leave Lazio in January Amidst Saudi Interest

Lazio would be willing to sell captain Ciro Immobile in January should an adequate offer arrive from Saudi Arabia.

The 33-year-old Italian striker was wanted by a handful of Saudi sides in the summer transfer window but ultimately decided to stay in the Italian capital, rejecting a two-year contract worth around €30 million total.

Immobile has not started the new season well. The striker has netted just two goals in 744 minutes of action across 11 appearances and is now under increasing pressure from backup striker Valentin Castellanos.

As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio would be willing to sell Immobile to a Saudi club in January should an offer of around €35 million arrive. The striker has already started to open up to the idea, hinting as such in a recent interview.

Should the 33-year-old depart, the Biancocelesti may look to immediately reinvest their funds into Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez, a player who was targeted in the summer and netted a brace in their recent Champions League clash.
