Bobby Adekanye's career at Liverpool seems to be about to end this summer, though he has almost decided to sign, sealed and delivered.

The 20-year-old has joined Barcelona's Reds in 2015 but has not done enough to join Jurgen Klopp's Anfield team.

The youngster's contract at Liverpool expires this summer and now he is ready to join Lazio, Serie A, where he is enthusiastic about his prospects.

"I was in Rome and I spoke to Lazio – they have big plans for me," Adekanye told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport. I'm interested in the proposal [they have put forward].

"I talked to sporting director Igli Tare. He thinks I can become a good player and getting to Lazio may be a good choice for my career.

"I'm following all the Biancocelesti games. In Serie A, I could improve my skills because I like to attack.

'[I am] 80 percent [close to Lazio]. I still have to make the final decision with my agent and my family.

Having also spent some time lending to PSV Eindhoven and playing for the Netherlands at youth level, Adekanye has a tremendous amount of pedigree, but a small and precious team experience.

He hopes this will change if he completes his transfer to the Italian capital when his Anfield journey comes to an end.
