Lazio not interested in Ciro Immobile sale despite Saudi Arabia interest

Lazio desire to keep striker Ciro Immobile despite interest from Saudi Arabian clubs.

According to a report by Gianluca Di Marzio, Lazio aren’t interested in listening to offers from Saudi Arabian clubs for the sale of striker Ciro Immobile. 

Saudi Arabian clubs like Al-Hilal, Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad have gone on a buying spree this summer to add flair and promise to the Saudi Pro League. It is expected that either of the mentioned clubs approached the 33-year-old during his vacation in New York for a possible transfer in the next few days.

The president of Lazio Claudio Lotito has emphasised that he hasn’t received any offers for Immobile and will do his best to keep the player as he has been crucial to the Biancocelesti in recent years. Lotito said: ”I haven’t received any offers for Ciro Immobile, he hasn’t told me he wants to leave either. We are talking about nothing. Ciro is like a son to me, he’s not for sale. He is one of the family. They should tempt me with at least €50 million and it’s not even said that I would let him go.”

After the departure of Sergej Milinković-Savić, the Middle Eastern clubs tried their hand to bring in another player from Lazio but this time it seems like they will be unsuccessful.
