Gale Kakuta is being linked to a move to Italian side Lazio, according to Graeme Bailey of Sky Sports.

It's unclear whether this would be yet another loan or a permanent transfer, but it's difficult to see Kakuta walking straight into a starting role with Lazio after struggling to find regular minutes in loans to less competitive leagues. The talent is certainly there, but he has struggled to find consistency at any stop during his professional career.
Lazio currently sit 9th in Serie A, trailing the final Europa League place by five points. Kakuta has also been linked to Aston Villa this January.
