Crystal Palace reach full agreement to sign Daichi Kamada

Daichi Kamada will reportedly complete a free transfer to Crystal Palace, with the Eagles scheduling the medical tests for this week.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Daichi Kamada will join Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window. The Eagles have sealed the agreement to sign the 27-year-old Lazio attacker on a free transfer. Meanwhile, they have booked the player’s medical tests, which should take place this week.

Daichi Kamada and his Lazio travails

Daichi Kamada has failed to hit the heights of his stint with Eintracht Frankfurt since joining Lazio in a Bosman move last summer. The move seemed to be a coup, considering the Japanese international’s exploits at the Bundesliga club. However, he endured a frustrating 2023/24 campaign at Stadio Olimpico.

Kamada managed less than 2,000 minutes of game time across 38 appearances in all competitions. While the 27-year-old chipped in with two goals and two assists, he started only 21 games. Meanwhile, the player’s spell with Lazio will end on July 1 as he will become a free agent again after a short stint with the Serie A club.

An adventure in the Premier League is on the cards for Kamada, with Crystal Palace vying for his signature. Oliver Glasner is keen on reuniting with his former Eintracht Frankfurt protege at Selhurst Park in the summer transfer window.

London calling?

Crystal Palace’s interest in Daichi Kamada is understandable. The Eagles are in a spot of bother over the long-term futures of Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise. Both star attackers are targets for almost every high-profile club in the Premier League. In addition, Will Hughes and Jeffrey Schlupp might leave Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

So, Kamada has emerged as a viable target for Crystal Palace, with the Japanese international on the verge of completing a summer move to Selhurst Park. The Eagles have sealed an agreement to secure his services, scheduling the medical tests for this week.

The move can help Crystal Palace continue the momentum from the last few months of the 2023/24 season. Glasner’s midas touch helped the South London club clinch a top-half finish, and Crystal Palace fans will hope more good fortune is on the cards next term.
