Lazio can count on Adekanye

Lazio have received the provisional international transfer for Bobby Adekanye, so he will be available for this weekend against Sampdoria.

The former Liverpool striker, full name Habeeb Omobolaji Adekanye, arrived as a free agent from the Liverpool academy.

A statement from Lazio this afternoon confirmed that FIFA had given a provisional international transfer while they evaluate the situation.

It means the 20-year-old will be in the squad for this weekend’s Serie A opener against Samp.

The Aquile are still waiting for the international transfer for Jony Rodriguez, however, as Malaga continue their legal battle to receive more money.

They claim the €2m release clause used by Lazio and the player was invalid and are demanding €12m.
