Liverpool have been cleared to sign Lazio forward Keita Balde Diao after reports emerged that he's considering his future at the club.

The Reds were linked with a £15m move for the teenager back in October and are believed to have kept tabs on the 19-year-old since.

Keita is disgruntled with his lack of playing time with Lazio and is understood to be thinking about a summer exit, according to Tuttomercatoweb, and that has put the Merseyside outfit back in the hunt for the Spaniard.

Italian press have claimed that Keita is set for showdown talks with Biancocelesti officials at the end of the season, and Keita could seek pastures new if he isn't given assurances over his future with the Serie A side.

Lazio were understood to be unwilling to sanction an exit for the former Barcelona youngster last month, but they could now review their stance when the summer transfer window opens.
