Liverpool midfielder Bobby Adekanye is closing in on a move to Lazio, according to the Goal’s Neil Jones.

The 20-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has chosen a new challenge away from Anfield.

Liverpool signed the winger in 2015 from Barcelona and he has featured regularly for the Under-23s and Under-19s.

However, the Netherlands Under-20 international has failed to make any senior appearances for the Reds.

There’s been no room in Klopp’s plans for Adekanye.

Boss Jurgen Klopp currently has the likes Mohamed Salah, Divock Origi, Sadio Mane, Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana who can occupy the wide roles, so competition is extremely fierce.

Because of this, the Nigerian-born player has reportedly opted for a four-year deal in Italy over penning a new contract on Merseyside.
