Liverpool's Nigerian-Born Winger Agrees Four-Year Deal With LazioPublished: June 03, 2019
Nigerian-born winger Bobby Adekanye is set to be unveiled as a player of Italian Serie A club Lazio.
The former Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam wonderkid has rejected a new three-year deal from European champions Liverpool and will leave the Premier League side as a free agent.
Adekanye opted not to renew his contract with the Reds because he was not guaranteed first-team opportunities by manager Jurgen Klopp.
''Bobby is going to Lazio, the deal is 85-90 percent completed. There are a few things to be ironed out before the transfer becomes official, '' a top source close to Adekanye told allnigeriasoccer.com.
''He has one leg in Lazio and will sign a four-year contract.
''He is happy with Liverpool but the coach did not give him a chance the way he was giving chances to other players.''
The 20-year-old Adekanye watched the final of the Coppa Italia between Lazio and Atalanta last month.
