Liverpool winger decided to leave club in summer

Liverpool winger Bobby Adekanye has opted to leave the Anfield side at the end of the campaign, with a move to Lazio looking increasingly likely.

Corriere Dello Sport is reporting, the Netherlands international is aware that his future chances in the first-team squad on the Reds are likely to be limited.

Given the surplus of talent already in front of him at Liverpool, it is hard to see where regular playing time will come for the star, despite how highly those at the club rate him.

Lazio have been big admirers of the attacker for some time, and the report adds that a first-team spot could be on offer in Italy as early as next campaign.

The Merseysiders have tried to renew the player’s deal, but their offer was turned down by Bobby Adekanye, who now looks ready to leave the club for nothing in the summer transfer window.

The youngster at the beginning enrolled at Ajax academy, which is producing one of the best talents in Europe with Frankie De Jong and Matthias de Ligt being the best examples.

Then the Liverpool starlet moved to La Masia only to end at Anfield with no playing time, and it is expected that the club will let him leave as the forward rejected chance to extend his stay with the club.

The departure of Nigerian born star will not be a huge loss for the Premier League club as they do have more players to replace the Netherlands U23.
