Ciro Immobile nearing Besiktas move


Ciro Immobile, Lazio’s iconic striker, is on the verge of completing a transfer to Turkish club Besiktas, marking the end of a remarkable era at the Roman club. The move comes after eight prolific seasons with Lazio, during which Immobile established himself as the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Lazio have accepted a €3 million bid from Besiktas for the 34-year-old captain. The deal is structured as a two-year contract with an option for a third year, with Immobile set to earn €6 million per season at his new club.

Immobile’s tenure at Lazio has been nothing short of extraordinary. Over the course of 340 appearances, he found the back of the net 207 times, cementing his status as a club legend[4]. His goalscoring prowess was instrumental in securing three titles for the Biancocelesti during his time in Rome.

However, recent developments suggest that Immobile’s relationship with Lazio president Claudio Lotito has deteriorated[4]. This, coupled with the player’s decision to sell his house in Rome, indicates that both parties were prepared for this transition.

As Immobile prepares to embark on a new chapter in his career with Besiktas, his departure signals the end of an era for Lazio. The club will now face the challenge of filling the void left by their talismanic striker, whose goals and leadership have been central to their success over the past eight years.
