Lazio-Immobile, divorce on the horizon. We think about the possible farewell of the bomber

Yesterday the striker saw his agents. President Lotito: “We haven’t received any offers yet”. But the agreement with the Turks is close. Simeone and Vitor Roque want to replace him

Divorce on the horizon. Ciro Immobile seems destined to leave Lazio. After 8 seasons with the Biancocelesti, he has played 340 games and scored 207 goals (best ever) and won three titles: the 2019 Coppa Italia, plus the 2017 and 2019 Super Cups. Only Stefano Fiore, before him, has scored a brace in a single final for the Biancocelesti. However, in 2017, against Juventus, Immobile achieved it in a single final. The only one in Lazio’s history. After a difficult period, in which the Lazio captain was disappointed by the insults he received (on social media) and the verbal abuse he suffered in front of his son’s nursery, a period in which he did not feel protected by society, Immobile is thinking goodbye. He has an offer from Besiktas on the table: more than 6 million per year for the next two seasons. Yesterday, the Biancocelesti number 17 had dinner with agents Moggi and Sommella to discuss the future. But his desire is to change the page.

the situation

Lazio president Claudio Lotito confirmed on Monday evening that no formal proposals had yet reached Formello. “We have not received any offers – he confirmed -. Immobile is a Lazio player, he has a contract with us and we have not received any offers from a club that wants to sign him. When we receive this offer we will evaluate it”. The Biancocelesti want more than 5 million euros for him. An agreement can be reached. We can reach the end of Immobile’s adventure in Rome. Before the news of the negotiations with Besiktas circulated, Lotito had sent, during the presentation conference of the new coach Marco Baroni, some messages that seemed to be directed specifically at Immobile. “We want to give space to merit, which in the recent past was put aside – he said -. Football has changed. Today we need physical strength, and we are taking players with exceptional athletic data. The flags are no longer there, it was a mistake to keep some players like this for so long, and anyone can leave, but on our terms”. The message urbi et orbi was sent, but with the immobile negotiating position it was probably not accidental.

the future

Lazio are looking around for a new striker. There is already an agreement with Boulaye Dia from Salernitana. Giovanni Simeone from Napoli has also been a favourite for some time. The Biancocelesti, who are lowering the average age of their squad, are also interested in 19-year-old Vitor Roque from Barcelona. But getting him won’t be easy at all. First of all, we have to understand what the future of Ciro Immobile will be. Because there seems to be an air of divorce between the Biancocelesti’s all-time top scorer and the club.
