Lazio to poach Liverpool talent

Lazio have reportedly agreed terms with 20-year-old Liverpool winger Bobby Adekanye, who will be a free agent in July.

According to several sources in both Italy and England, the Nigeria-born Dutchman will not sign a new contract when his current deal expires in June.

Part of the Liverpool Under-23 team after spells in the academies of Ajax, Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven, Adekanye caught the eye of Lazio with three goals and two assists in 13 competitive games this season.

A right-sided winger who can also play on the left or in a more central trequartista role behind the strikers, he’d be a valuable free transfer for the Lazio squad.

It’s reported he’ll pen a four-year contract with Lazio worth €0.5m per season.
