Prolific scorer Ciro Immobile has extended his contract with Lazio through 2025.

His previous contract was due to expire in 2023.

This is important, because Immobile had gained the attention of some big clubs, considering that hes the European Golden Boot holder, Lazio communications director Stefano De Martino said Monday.

In the Serie A season that ended early August, Immobile scored 36 goals to match Gonzalo Higuains Italian league record.

Immobile also led Serie A in 2013-14 with 22 goals for Torino.

The new deal reportedly raises Immobiles salary from 3.5 million euros ($4.2 million) to 4 million euros ($4.8 million) per season.

If he continues at his current pace, the 30-year-old Immobile should have no problem becoming Lazios all-time leading scorer. With 125 goals across all competitions, he currently sits third on the Roman clubs scoring chart behind Silvio Piola (149 goals) and Giuseppe Signori (127).
