Lazio agree deal for Adekanye


Italian Serie A outfit, SS Lazio have reportedly agreed a summer move to sign 20-year-old winger Bobby Adekanye.


The player of Nigerian desent will join the Biancocelesti on a free transfer from Liverpool.

According to Rome-based broadcast RadioSei, Lazio management have basically sealed the deal with the Liverpool U23 forward.

Liverpool signed Adekanye from Barcelona in 2015, and the winger has established himself as a regular in the youth setup at the Merseyside giants.

Three goals have been scored from 13 appearances in Premier League 2 and the UEFA Youth League this season, but it appears that the 20-year-old will leave Anfield.

Adekanye will make the switch to Lazio in the summer having failed to break into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad.

The 20-year-old can play on both wings or behind the forward. He is demanding for a million euros annual wage to join the capital club.

The tricky lad is yet to make his first team debut for the Reds, but has been training with Jurgen Klopp’s first team.

The Nigerian born winger is out of contract at the end of the season, leaving him free to complete a move to the Italian side.
