Reds receive boost in chase for exciting forward.
Liverpool could be set to make a move for £15m-rated Lazio forward Keita Balde Diao this January, according to the Daily Mirror.
The talented 19-year-old has been linked with top clubs in the past and now looks likely to leave Serie A this winter after falling out of favour in the club’s first-team this season.
Liverpool face some uncertainty over the future of Raheem Sterling, with the England youngster being linked with the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain as he stalls on signing a new contract at Anfield.
Keita could make a fine signing at just £15m, and it may be that Brendan Rodgers is looking at him with the view to replacing Sterling as his future remains unresolved.
