Lazio could be the subject of a FIFA complaint after Liverpool reportedly ‘expressed concern’ over Bobby Adekanye’s transfer.
Adekanye completed a free transfer to Lazio earlier in the week, but the Evening Standard warns Liverpool have alerted FIFA to suspicions the 20-year-old was tapped up.
Players under the age of 23 are not allowed to negotiate pre-contractual agreements with foreign clubs once they enter the final six months of their deals, unlike their senior counterparts.
The newspaper adds the Reds missed out on a transfer fee for Adekanye, instead receiving just €270,000 for training costs.
It now remains to be seen whether they follow up with a formal complaint to FIFA.
