Persepolis closing in on Caicedo contract

Persian Gulf Pro League champion Persepolis is on the verge of signing former Lazio striker Felipe Caicedo for a reported $600,000 fee.
The 35-year-old Ecuadorian, who has 22 goals under his belt in 68 international caps, spent last season at the Saudi Pro League side Abha Club, where he scored three in 24 appearances across all competitions.
Also an ex-player of Basel, Manchester City, Lokomotiv Moscow, and Espanyol, Caicedo played for Lazio between 2017 and 2021, bagging 28 strikes in 105 outings.
Should the deal go through, it will bring an end to the Tehran Reds’ desperate summer-long search for a forward as manager Yahya Golmohammadi has only one recognized striker in Shahab Zahedi at his disposal, after parting ways with Issa Alekasir and Mehdi Abdi during the transfer window.
