Keita Balde is reportedly a target for Liverpool
Liverpool have been linked with a summer move for Lazio's Keita Balde who has just one year remaining on his contract.
Jurgen Klopp is said to be keen to sign the 22-year-old on a cut-price deal and pair him with fellow Senegal international Sadio Mane at Anfield.
However, Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim the Reds' hopes of signing the winger are slim because he favours a move to Juventus.
And the forward has reportedly already agreed personal with the Serie A champions ahead of a summer move to Turin.
Keita Balde has reportedly set his sights on a move to Juventus
With just one year remaining on his deal in the Italian capital, Lazio are reportedly asking for £26million for the winger.
And the Reds are said to have been enticed – especially as Balde is a cheaper option than Roma's Mohamed Salah who is valued at £35m.
However, the deal now looks highly unlikely with the report claiming the Senegal international has already agreed terms with Juventus.

Keita was linked with a move to AC Milan in April, following his fine displays for Lazio.
However, his agent Roberto Calenda dismissed the reports as hearsay after his client bagged an impressive five-minute hat-trick against Palermo.
"No agreement, no greeting, no meeting," Calenda wrote on Twitter.
"They're all inventions after Keita's hat-trick… that's the only thing that's real!"
