Liverpool set to miss out on 22-year-old Lazio winger, Juventus set to win the race

The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating any potential incomings this summer, with the hope that some top players will be signed after the club’s Champions League qualification.

After securing a top four berth in the Barclays Premier League it is anticipated that boss Jurgen Klopp will look to recruit stellar additions as they bid to be competitive in four competitions next season.

Our landlord has, however, spotted some bad news in the Sunday Express who are reporting that Lazio winger Keita Balde will reject Liverpool’s advances in favour of a move to Juventus.

Reports in Italy, via the Express, have confirmed that the 22-year-old has already declined the chance to move to Liverpool and has instead agreed personal terms with the Serie A champions.

The Senegal international would have represented a solid acquisition for Liverpool and his pace and power in the final third would have seen him fit perfectly into Klopp’s style of football.

A couple of Liverpool fans are in the Tavern enjoying a pint in the sunshine and they aren’t too disappointed that this deal hasn’t come off, stating that they are hopeful of attracting some truly top players this summer rather than ones for the future.

Liverpool fans, would you have welcomed Balde to the club? Who should the club sign instead? Let us know in the comments below!!!
