Keita Balde

A relatively quiet period regarding transfers is finally interrupted.

According to various reports, Keita Balde has agreed terms over a move to Juventus this summer. Juve are set to beat English giants Liverpool to the winger’s signature.

The youngster has just enjoyed his most productive season with Lazio, though his current contract with the club expires next summer and it is believed that they may be ready to cash in on the Senegalese international.

The 22-year-old will be available at something of a cut price, which had alerted the attention of Liverpool to his attention as a possible cheaper alternative to top target Mohamed Salah, though it seems Juventus are in pole position to secure a deal.

A fee is yet to be agreed with their Serie A rivals but a bid in the region of €30m is thought likely to be enough to force Lazio’s hand and see another of Italy’s top young talents make the move to Turin.
