Chelsea Transfer News: French Flop Kakuta Set For Lazio

It looks as though Gael Kakuta's time at Chelsea is finally up. The French forward, who was once classed as one of the hottest prospects on the books at Stamford Bridge, looks set to move to Lazio on a permanent deal. According to MailOnline, the deal is only worth a nominal fee for the player, and that he will sign a three year deal for the Italians. In his time at Chelsea, Kakuta spent loan periods at Fulham, Bolton, Dijon and Vitesse to gain experience, and attempt to break through into the first team picture, but it looks like Jose Mourinho has given up on that possibility. Ironically, the deal to sign Kakuta way back in 2007 from Lens was the very deal which lead to Chelsea's high-profile transfer embargo, which saw them fined for their conduct after complaints from his original club. Do you agree that it was time to get rid of Kakuta? Share your thoughts below.
