Liverpool winger Bobby Adekanye had looked all set to leave Anfield. The 19-year-old was negotiating a five-year deal with Serie A side Lazio after talking to the Rome club for the last month and was according to Corriere dello Sport .
It seemed that he was all set to leave in the summer for Simone Inzaghi’s side.
But Lazio have taken the extraordinary step of releasing a statement saying the Adekanye deal is not happening.
In fact they went to far as saying they’ve never entered into negotiations with the player.
Adekanye has trained with the first team this season but has been unable to break into the side.
The Nigerian, who represents the Netherlands, joined Liverpool from Barcelona three years ago.
He has also previously played for Ajax and PSV Eindhoven and was keen for more first team football.
And while he was hoping that would have been at Lazio, they released a statement saying : “In reference to the news released by some press, according to which the SS Lazio would have found an agreement with the player Bobby Adekanye.
“The Company denies this circumstance and announces that it has not signed any contract, nor has it started negotiations for membership of the aforementioned player.”
Adekanye will now have to try and force is way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans.
