Keita agent: ‘Goal changes everything’

The agent of Lazio’s Keita Balde Diao says he could stay in Rome, but moving to Inter is ‘a fascinating possibility.’

The youngster hit the headlines on Tuesday after scoring the Biancoceleste’s winning goal in their 1-0 Champions League Playoff victory over Bayer Leverkusen.

However, he is believed to be unsettled in the capital after becoming frustrated at a lack of playing time, and agent Ulisse Savini discussed his options.

“The goal could change everything,” he told Radio Sportiva.

“We had requested the transfer because a 20-year-old needs to play.

“There’s a very good relationship with Lazio we were discussing a solution that would satisfy both us and the club, the dialogue is continuous and now we will also evaluate the option of staying.

“Interest from Inter? There have been many links and a number of possibilities shared with Lazio, Inter are looking for a winger and it’s a fascinating possibility, but there are also others.

“Keita has a love for the Premier League and that is the number one target for us, but there is the passport issue.

“We are considering all the possibilities, however, is wrong to say that we want leave by force.”
