Keita to sign Lazio deal?

Lazio will reportedly renew the contract of teenage talent Keita Balde Diao, a transfer target for Liverpool.

The striker arrived for a nominal sum when he left the Barcelona youth academy and has gone from strength to strength.

He only turned 19 a couple of weeks ago and has already scored four Serie A goals in 16 appearances this season, plus one in eight Europa League games.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Keita is set for a contract extension within the next few days.

It would include a considerable wage increase, starting from €400,000 per season.

Keita has repeatedly been linked with a move to the Premier League, as Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham have shown an interest.
