Ulisse Savini has divulged more details on Cavanda and Diakite's contract situation and the outcome remains bleak for those who are fans of the players.

On Cavanda:

"The value of Cavanda is between three and five million. Arsenal have watched him a few times, but it would be difficult to place him there. In the winter, there was a 2.5 million bid from Reading, but Lotito rejected it. It would have been a welcome solution for us. It is not possible for Cavanda to stay beyond the summer. Firstly, he is young and not playing for a year-and-a-half would not be good for him and secondly, he has a lot of respect for Lazio and does not want to leave on a free transfer."

On Diakite':

"We are in discussions with Napoli, the problem is not the figures but some issues at a higher level with Napoli. The numbers are higher than what Lazio offered. Lazio offered 750,000 per year with additional bonuses and Napoli have offered slightly more. But in the end, this was not about figures but other issues with Lazio."

"Initially, they offered 500,000 which caused a fracture between player and club but they offered a new deal after Diakite' played against Siena in the Coppa Italia and we came close to signing it."
