Last Tuesday, we covered claims from Italy that Crystal Palace have made contact with Daichi Kamada and are ready to offer him the money he wants.

At the weekend, Radiosei stated the Eagles have made an offer worth €5m, and his agents are set to travel this week to sort out his future. report Crystal Palace continue to put pressure on as they are keen on securing the 27-year-old’s services.

He joined the Serie A side on a free transfer last summer and signed a one-year contract, with an option to extend it for three more years. The report states there’s a deadline of May 30th to activate this option.

It’s claimed the Japan international is demanding a deal worth €3.5m to extend his stay, and Lazio chairman Claudio Lotito has to decide on whether or not to meet his request. If he doesn’t, it can allow Crystal Palace to sign him on a free transfer.

Luis Alberto’s exit will free up the wage bill and that may be used to retain Kamada, who had previously played under Crystal Palace manager Oliver Glasner at Eintracht Frankfurt.

There should be more clarity on his future in the coming days, once his representatives arrive in Italy.

Meanwhile, Lotito spoke to Il Messaggero and was asked about the Crystal Palace target’s future.

“He said he wanted to stay, now he has to prove he’s serious,” he said, relayed by TMW.
