Kakuta deal would be permanent - report

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

The Gael Kakuta to Lazio rumours are intensifying, and now it seems that the Frenchman could head to the Stadio Olimpico on a permanent deal. The Serie A side are without a playmaker after selling Hernanes to Inter Milan, and so the 22-year-old would be a perfect fit; a report from Sport Mediaset claims that Chelsea are set to make €2 million from the deal.

Kakuta's basically exhausted his career at Stamford Bridge following a series of ineffective loan spells, so a permanent move makes plenty of sense and €2 million is a welcome windfall. Although we shouldn't take this deal as done, if true, the transfer would be a major step up for Kakuta and a great chance to get his career back onto the track everyone expected him to be on by now. Hopefully Chelsea put a buyout clause or a sell-on fee* in there -- if they don't and he breaks out in Rome they'll certainly regret it.

*The latter is more Chelsea's style of late.
