Adekanye has been in Merseyside since 2015 but has still not made a single first-team appearance for the Premier League giants and looks set to leave at the end of this season when his contract expires.
Speaking to Voetbal Zone last month, the Nigerian admitted that he has decided not to sign a new deal at Anfield and accused Liverpool of broken promises after he was left out of the club’s pre-season tour of the USA.
Adekanye confirmed that he had an offer on the table from Barcelona but it seems like Italy will be destination.
La Lazio Siamo Noi claims that he is ready to accept a three-year deal with Lazio despite an opportunity to return to Ajax, who he played for at youth level before moving to England four years ago.
The Champions League quarter-finalists have one of the most famous academies in world football and time will tell whether Adekanye is making the right call turning down a club who has provided a platform for Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, Andre Onana and co.
