Liverpool are intensifying their interest in Lazio sensation Keita Balde Diao.

Liverpool are intensifying their interest in Lazio sensation Keita Balde Diao.

Sky Italia says Liverpool are keeping an eye on Keita who fell out with Barcelona over a youth team prank before moving to Lazio, says the Daily Express.

The Anfield outfit had the Spanish-born player watched in Lazio's 1-0 victory over Legia Warsaw in the Europa League last Thursday.

Keita has a contract with Lazio until June 2017, but given that the youngster only cost the club £250,000 two seasons ago, it is thought that the Rome club would not demand an astronomical fee for the player.
