Reports on Monday morning suggest that Lazio captain Ciro Immobile could reconsider offers of a move to Saudi Arabia in the summer, although his current focus is on regaining Champions League football with the Biancocelesti.
Immobile was subject of several approaches from the Middle East during the summer transfer window, but opted to stay in Rome with Lazio for the 2023-24 season.
Recent reports indicate that the interest from Saudi Arabia still exists, even if there were no official offers made during the January transfer window.
Both Calciomercato.com and Il Corriere dello Sport report that Immobile could re-consider those proposals if they come up again this summer.
It is believed that Immobile currently earns around €4m per season at the Stadio Olimpico, but clubs including Al Shabab and Al Wheda could put a two-year contract on the table worth a total of €18m, which is well over double what the 33-year-old would earn during the remaining two years on his Lazio contract.
Immobile’s current deal with Lazio is set to expire in the summer of 2026.
Calciomercato report that if the same offer is put forward again this summer, it would be incredibly difficult for Immobile to turn down.
However, for the moment Immobile is focused on his career with Lazio.
He grabbed the 200th Serie A of his career against Cagliari on Saturday and still has two big ambitions for the remaining months of the 2023-24 season: Finishing in the Serie A top four and a place in Luciano Spalletti’s Italy squad for the Euro 2024 campaign in Germany.
