Report: Honda in talks with Lazio


CSKA Moscow is still in discussions with Italian club Lazio over the transfer of playmaker Keisuke Honda, British media reported Tuesday.

The Sporting Life website quoted the Russian Premier League club’s president, Yevgeny Giner, as telling Radio Mayak, “I can confirm that some Lazio officials came to Moscow to discuss a deal for Honda.”

“The negotiations are still ongoing as we have not reached an agreement. Currently our valuations are around €2-€3 million apart. I would not say the transfer will definitely happen, but let’s see what will happen in the coming days,” Giner said.

Last week, Russian newspaper Sport-Express said the talks had broken down, while Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport said the negotiations had gone well.
