On April 26th, Corriere dello Sport stated Crystal Palace are seriously trying to sign Lazio’s Daichi Kamada.

Earlier this month, Il Messaggero reported the Eagles have made contact for a potential deal in the summer window.

The Japan international has received an offer from Crystal Palace if Radiosei, relayed by La Lazio Siamo Noi, is to be believed.

Last summer, the midfielder joined the Serie A side on a free transfer and signed a one-year deal, with an option to extend it for three more years.

He was mainly used as a substitute this season, but his game time has improved ever since Igor Tudor replaced Maurizio Sarri in March. Kamada has clocked in 683 minutes from nine games under the current manager.

Lazio sporting director Angelo Mariano Fabiani is optimistic the player will continue and it will only be possible if his deal is extended. The option expires at the end of this month and without it, he can leave as a free agent.

It’s claimed Kamada’s agents Roberto Tukuda and Manuel Ferreira will arrive in Italy next week, to evaluate his future.

Crystal Palace have made an offer worth €5m and this ‘would make him falter’ to consider his future. This is likely to be a contractual offer to the player rather than to Lazio.

In the ‘next few days’, it will be clear whether or not Kamanda will stay at Lazio. A move to Selhurst Park will see the Japanese reunite with his former manager, Oliver Glasner.
