Lazio president Claudio Lotito insists that neither Inter Milan nor Juventus have bid for in-demand forward Keita Balde Diao this summer.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has revealed that neither Inter Milan nor Juventus have bid for Keita Balde Diao this summer, but the Serie A outfit have received offers "from abroad".

Keita, 22, scored 16 times in 35 appearances for Lazio last season, but the Senegal international will be out of contract at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, and is said to be refusing to sign a new deal.

Inter Milan have been strongly linked with a move for the attacker in recent days amid speculation that Ivan Perisic is heading for Manchester United, but the San Siro outfit have not made an official approach, according to Lotito.

"I haven't received offers from Inter or Juventus, but they have come from abroad," Lotito told reporters.

Keita, who is said to be interesting a number of Premier League clubs, turned out for Barcelona's youth teams between 2004 and 2011 before joining Lazio.
