Lazio have agreed the signing of Daichi Kamada on a free transfer, with an official announcement imminent. The player had offers from multiple clubs, including AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund, but has now decided to move to Rome and sign for the Albiceleste.
The midfielder has arrived in Italy and will soon be presented as a new signing for Lazio. He has been a free agent for over a month after leaving Eintracht Frankfurt upon the expiry of his contract. And now, he will be taking up a new challenge in Italy.
Daichi Kamada to sign for Lazio on a free transfer
The player has reportedly agreed a two-year contract with Lazio, with the option for a third. He will be earning a salary in the region of €4 million per season, with a signing bonus of around €5 million.
Lazio’s partnership with Japanese sportswear company Mizuno helped them complete the deal. They needed reinforcements in midfield after losing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to Al Hilal. And now, they have a new midfielder to help them on the attacking side of play.
Daichi Kamada was a vital part of Eintracht Frankfurt’s recent success. He scored 16 goals and provided seven assists in all competitions this past season. The Japan international was also crucial to their 2021/22 Europa League win. His skillfulness in the middle of the park and ability to score and create will be hugely beneficial for Maurizio Sarri in the coming season.
