“They showed interest and a good project for Bobby. Contacts started a bit over a month ago. He’s very interested in playing in Italy, very happy about Lazio’s interest and the possibility of playing there.”

Liverpool not the right place for Adekanye

The youngster’s agent added that Liverpool wasn’t the right place for Adekanye’s development but believed Lazio was the right place for his development:
