Lazio sporting director Igli Tare had some comments on the on their transfer activity, and confirmed that a deal fro Gael Kakuta was likely. Here's what he had to say:
"Is the market over for us? Yes, I think so. We are only in for Kakuta now. I think you’ll soon see what a strong lad he is."
Reports in Italy now suggest that this might be a 6-month deal, as opposed to the permanent transfer which we were hearing discussed earlier.
At this point, I have no idea whether or not Kakuta's move will be permanent. It appears very likely that he'll be heading to Italy though, no matter what the specifics of the deal end up being. We shouldn't have to wait too long to find out what those specifics are, as there are only a few hours left befor the window closes.
