Lazio had previously been said to have already struck a deal with Liverpool’s youngster Bobby Adekanye on a free transfer in the summer, but now, Lazio have officially denied any deal or ongoing negotiations. This is the statement from the club.
“With reference to the news disseminated by some press organs, according to which the S.S. Lazio would have found an agreement with the player Bobby Adekanye, the club denies this news and announces that it has not signed any contract, nor has it started negotiations for the registration of the aforementioned player.”
This comes as quite a surprise to Laziali and Liverpool fans, as multiple sources had already listed the player as ‘owned’ by Lazio, including Transfermarkt. The Dutch and Nigerian attacker has a contract expiring at the end of this season and we will see if the news turns out to be true. At 19 years of age, it would be a proper signing for the Bianceleste and Primavera side.
