Monaco winger Keita Balde as been offered to Lazio as an alternative to Mattia Zaccagni.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the Biancocelesti have still not closed out a deal for the 26-year-old Italian midfielder, despite having reached an agreement already with Hellas Verona.

With the Biancocelesti still looking to provide coach Maurizio Sarri with a new forward, a solution must be found before the window closes this evening.

Lazio Need to Increase Salary Offer by €500,000 to Close Out Deal for Zaccagni

Football agent Federico Pastorello has offered Keita Balde to Lazio. The player, whose contract expires next year with Monaco, is on the fringes at the Ligue 1 side and can be signed for around €6-7 million.

Keita, who left Lazio in poor terms four years ago, would enthusiastically accept a return to the Roman club.

Coach Sarri is considering the 26-year-old Senegalese winger and he may decide to give the green light to the deal, but the clock is ticking.

Cagliari are also keen on Keita and may finalise a deal before the Biancocelesti pull the trigger (via Di Marzio).
