'Liverpool and Inter want Keita'

A sale from Lazio “is not predicted,” but Keita Balde Diao is wanted by Liverpool and Inter, confirmed his agent.

The Spanish striker spent much of last season on the bench as his side powered to third place in Serie A.

“For years there have been several offers coming in, but considering the situation I have to say this summer they are particularly interesting,” representative Ulisse Savini told Radio Sei.

“I personally spoke to Lazio and they said his sale is not predicted. It’s only natural that he isn’t satisfied with the situation, so we are evaluating other options.

“Liverpool have a manager who relishes attacking players like Keita. It is a destination we would like, but we have to verify a series of situations. So far I have not had any direct contact with Liverpool.

“Inter? I have an excellent rapport with them and know they are seeking wide attackers. The Nerazzurri really like Keita, but I think right now they are aiming for other objectives.


“In life you never know, as you might not get the first target and go for a second. I wouldn’t rule them out.”
