Immobile commits to Lazio for life

Ciro Immobile is ready to commit the rest of his career to Lazio, putting pen to paper on a deal until June 2026.

According to Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, Immobile is on the verge of signing a lengthy new contract that will keep him at the Stadio Olimpico until the age of at least 36.

That would make it a five-year contract with option to extend for a further year after that.

The salary is expected to be around €3.5-4m per season plus performance-related bonuses.

Having travelled widely during his career at Juventus, Genoa, Torino, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, Immobile finally found a home at Lazio in 2016.

The 2019-20 campaign was the best of his career, winning the Capocannoniere title, the Golden Shoe award as top scorer in European league competition and equalling Gonzalo Higuain’s all-time record of 36 Serie A goals in a single season.

There were reports of interest from Napoli, Liverpool and even Barcelona, but the 30-year-old is committed to the Aquile, especially after their qualification for the Champions League.
