The agent of Lazio striker Keita Balde Diao reveals that the Serie A side rejected bids from Liverpool and Juventus during this summer's transfer window.

The agent of Keita Balde Diao has revealed that Liverpool and Juventus both had offers turned down for the striker during this summer's transfer window.

Lazio reportedly placed a £24m price tag on the forward during the window, but no deal was completed for the teenager before the deadline earlier this month.

Anglo Cascella told Efe: "Liverpool and Juventus offered a sum of €20m for Keita last summer, but Lazio always rejected their offers."

Keita made 33 appearances in all competitions for Lazio last season, scoring six goals.
