Italian Serie A giants Lazio have signed exciting winger Bobby Adekanye from Liverpool on a free transfer.

His transfer to Italy was confirmed by Lazio earlier on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old turned down the offer of a new contract at Liverpool to sign for Italian capital club Lazio for free.

The Reds tried to offer him a new deal in January when he had six months left on his contract and club officials were even willing to send him on loan during the winter transfer window for him to play regular football.

Bobby Adekanye was on the payroll of Spanish champions Barcelona until 2015 when he joined Liverpool while he was still a teenager.

The Nigerian-born winger signed a four-year contract when he became a Liverpool player in 2015.

He didn’t make a single appearance for Liverpool during his stay with the newly crowned Champions League winners.

Bobby Adekanye missed out on the Reds team that won the Champions League final via a 2-0 win over Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Mohamed Salah (penalty) and substitute Divock Origi scored either side of the halftime interval to hand Liverpool the title.

Bobby Adekanye has been assured of regular playing time at Lazio by manager Simone Inzaghi.
