Liverpool reportedly enter into the race with Roma for Lazio defender Modibo Diakite.

Liverpool will reportedly enter the race with Roma for the signature of Lazio's Modibo Diakite.

The defender is out of contract in the summer and the Reds will battle it out with Lazio's local rivals to sign the 26-year-old, according to TalkSPORT.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a central defender after Jamie Carragher announced that he will be retiring at the end of the campaign.

Although Roma coach Andrea Andreazzoli is keen on the player, Diakite is understood to have reservations about leaving his current club for their fierce local rivals.
