Fiorentina look to Keita Balde

Keita Balde Diao could be heading back to Serie A yet again, this time on loan from Monaco to Fiorentina.

According to La Repubblica, the Senegal international forward is on the Viola radar for this season.

He came up through the Lazio youth academy and was sold to Monaco for €30m in 2017.

The 24-year-old was on loan at Inter last term, at a cost of €5m, but the Nerazzurri did not take up their option to buy.

Keita could well return to Serie A again for Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in a similar loan with option deal.

Keita alternative to Correa for Milan

Keita Balde Diao of Monaco has emerged as an alternative should Milan fail to secure Angel Correa from Atletico Madrid.

The Rossoneri’s plans to purchase Correa for €40m plus numerous bonuses hit problems this week when Monaco suddenly cancelled their transfer for Andre Silva.

That €30m was meant to raise the necessary funds for Correa, but Sky Sport Italia suggest there are more problems for the Argentina international.

Inzaghi outsmarted toothless Inter

Lazio were happy to let Inter pour forward with no real incision or genuine threat, explains Elio Salerno, as Simone Inzaghi's gameplan paid off.

Simone Inzaghi tactically out-foxed Inter boss Luciano Spalletti and took Lazio to a thoroughly-deserved victory at San Siro.

Inter started the match in positive fashion, the intensity was high and Lazio were being forced into quick turnovers of possession, allowing Luciano Spalletti’s team to apply early pressure on Thomas Strakosha’s goal. But Inzaghi had come prepared and once the early storm had been weathered, his well thought out plan came to the fore.

Senegal lose Keita over email error

In a bizarre story, Inter striker Keita Balde Diao failed to attend international duty because the Senegal FA used the wrong email.

The forward was originally named in the list of players called up for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Equatorial Guinea on November 17.

However, his club was never informed because Senegal Federation Vice-President Abdoulaye Sow confessed they sent it to the wrong Inter email.

Federation President Augustin Senghor asked to get the player, but as it was after the deadline, Inter were able to refuse.
