Liverpool are lining up the transfer of Keita Balde Diao, as he is set for showdown talks with Lazio next week, according to reports.

Keita, 20, has reportedly demanded to leave the Serie A outfit, and the Reds are interested in landing the highly-rated forward.

The Senegalese star is set for crunch talks with the Lazio president Claudio Lotito next week, who will attempt to prevent the youngster from leaving.

Brendan Rodgers is thought to be an avid admirer of Keita – but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also thought to be tracking him.
