Lazio striker Keita Balde Diao’s agent has confirmed that the former FC Barcelona man wants a move to Liverpool FC. .
The Spanish striker spent much of last season on the bench as Lazio secured a Champions League spot with a third place finish in Serie A.
Keita, 20, featured in only 23 games for Lazio, with just 6 starts as he scored only once for the Roman outfit.
However, his agent has now come out and said that the player could be moving to Liverpool FC after being far from happy at losing his place in the side with Inter Milan also keeping an eye out for the player.
a For years there have been several offers coming in, but considering the situation I have to say this summer they are particularly interesting,a Keita’s agent Ulisse Savini told Radio Sei.
a I personally spoke to Lazio and they said his sale is not predicted. Ita s only natural that he isna t satisfied with the situation, so we are evaluating other options.
a Liverpool have a manager who relishes attacking players like Keita. It is a destination we would like, but we have to verify a series of situations. So far I have not had any direct contact with Liverpool.
a Inter? I have an excellent rapport with them and know they are seeking wide attackers. The Nerazzurri really like Keita, but I think right now they are aiming for other objectives.
a In life you never know, as you might not get the first target and go for a second. I wouldna t rule them out.a
Well, Liverpool FC have already snapped up two young forward in the form of Dany Ings and Divock Origi, who has returned from his loan spell at Lille.
It remains highly unlikely that Liverpool FC will considering going for the former FC Barcelona man, given that they have enough funds to secure a much more finished product rather than another player with potential.
