Frankfurt’s Daichi Kamada open to Roma summer switch

Andy Mattioli

Roma are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Japanese midfielder Daichi Kamada of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Fresh off an impressive World Cup display with his national team, Kamada is anxious to find out what the future might hold for his club career.

According to Il Romanista, Mourinho has identified Kamada as one of his preferred options for Roma’s midfield: the 26-year-old’s versatility allows him to switch positions from attacking midfielder to a false nine, resulting in 7 goals and 3 assists in 13 league games so far this season.

Kamada’s contract with Frankfurt is set to expire in June and so far there have been no signs of the player renewing anytime soon with the German side.

For the time being, Everton and Benfica have manifested interest in the player, but Roma could grant him a more prominent role in Mourinho’s squad: the Special One is reportedly a big fan of Kamada’s and considers him an ideal fit for Roma’s needs.

Moreover, the player himself has reportedly welcomed Roma’s approach in recent weeks.
