CorSport: Milan overtake Napoli in race to sign Bundesliga forward

By Oliver Fisher -

Speculation has been mounting suggesting that AC Milan have a concrete interest in signing playmaker Daichi Kamada on a free transfer.

According to today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Kamada is indeed a transfer target for both Milan and Napoli. He is currently playing at Eintracht Frankfurt but will leave the German club at the end of the season when his deal expires, meaning he is available on a free transfer.

Both Serie A sides are keen on convincing him to try a new experience in Italy, but the Rossoneri seem to be ahead at the moment. The salary ceiling imposed by Aurelio De Laurentiis is a maximum of €3.5m net per season per player, and the Japan international wants more.

There is talk of a salary request that fluctuates between €4-5m net per year, which is why Napoli seem to have turned to Atalanta playmaker Teun Koopmeiners, who is a realistic target even if their sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli leaves for Juventus.

There are even some sources speaking of a verbal agreement with Kamada, who has 15 goals and 6 assists in 44 games across the Bundesliga, Champions League, European Super Cup and German Cup this season.

  1. He has 2 million gross now, by capology.

    Hm…players requests for big salary should be affected by pitch performance. New arrivals can’t have salaries like already proven players.

    1. Funny, people complain about how bad Maldini and Massara are at their jobs because they didn’t sign Kvaratskhelia (why would they if they have Leao, but anyway) and for all the other signings or non-signings, but when it seems they’re stealing a march on the great Giuntoli (who signed the great Kvaratskhelia for Napoli), it’s a misstep. Nevermind that Kamada is apparently also being followed by Liverpool, Dortmund, Newcastle, and Benfica. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

    1. What has he actually do? He is a good box to box but a victim of the English overhype machine, waiting on his “world class potential” for almost a decade now

  2. i like kamada… he’s a solid player in Germany and showed great quality during World Cup as well.

    Anyway, where we need to spend our big bucks is a new right back and a forward — those are our 2 biggest weaknesses in starting 11. Calabria and Kalulu are way to inconsistent and make too many mistakes so we need a RB. And Giroud has been valiant in his efforts; but he’s old and Ibra is done. We need an out and out striker. Those 2 positions by far. Then spend bits of money here or there to try to get some backups/depth. Like a guy who can play both right back and left back so he can play in case either outside back needs a rest, gets a yellow card suspension or gets hurt.
