Ciro Immobile's future seems to be far from Sevilla. The Italian could soon be on his way back to his homeland to join Lazio if Sevilla accept the latest offer for the striker. According to reports coming out of Italy, Lazio and the player have approved a contract which would see Immobile earn two million euros for each of the next four seasons. For Sevilla, the deal would work in the following way: Lazio would loan the player for two million euros this season but a clause in the contract would oblige them to but the player for eight million at the end of the loan period; an operation which would leave 10 million euros in Sevilla's purse. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sevilla would be willing to offload the player under such an arrangement but Immobile's departure would mean that Jorge Sampaoli would need to find a replacement striker.
