Lazio president Claudio Lotito has insisted that the club has no intention of selling Ciro Immobile in the near future, despite recent reports that the Biancocelesti striker is expected to consider offers from Saudi Arabia in January.
Immobile has reportedly attracted interest from Saudi Pro League sides Al-Shabaab and Al-Wehda this summer, in a deal believed to be worth €35 million plus bonuses on a two-year contract. La Gazzetta dello Sport wrote on Monday that a move to the Middle East was a possibility in January. However, Immobile is under contract with Lazio until the summer of 2026, and Lotito insists that the club is not willing to let any player leave just yet. “I don’t know anything about Saudi Arabia’s offers, nobody has ever asked me anything and I haven’t had the slightest idea of any possible interest. We never had the impression that there was a problem. Ciro Immobile has a contract until 2026, and the club has no interest in him leaving. We don’t want to sell anyone,” wrote Lotito, as reported by Calciomercato.com.
