AS Monaco reportedly agree a fee with Lazio to sign 22-year-old forward Keita Balde Diao amid speculation over the futures of Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar.

AS Monaco have reportedly agreed a deal to sign forward Keita Balde Diao from Lazio.

Keita has been heavily linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico this summer, but he has so far rejected all options other than Italian champions Juventus.

However, Sky Italia reports that Monaco have seen a bid of €30m (£27.8m) accepted for the 22-year-old and are hopeful of completing the deal before the transfer deadline on Thursday.

Any agreement could have a knock-on effect for Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar, who have been the subject of big-money bids in recent days.

Mbappe is understood to be on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain - initially on loan before making the move permanent next summer - while Liverpool and Arsenal have both been strongly linked with Lemar.
