Bobby Adekanye is set to quit Liverpool after being offered a triple-your-money contract by Lazio, Football Insider understands.

The Dutch youth international, 20, is in talks to join the Serie A big hitters as he prepares to leave Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season.

A Lazio source has told Football Insider that Lazio have offered Adekanye a five-year contract worth around £17,000-a-week before tax.

This is triple what the Liverpool Under-23 ace is earning at the Premier League leaders, who he joined from the Barcelona youth ranks in the summer of 2015.

Adekanye, who is predominantly a right-sided forward, has spoken of his desire to leave Anfield in order to get senior game time and he is now set to depart on a Bosman summer free.

As reported by Football Insider, the Nigeria-born youngster has rejected a three-year deal offered by Liverpool in recent weeks and the club have responded by freezing him out of their Under-23s side.

Lazio are in pole position to sign Adekanye ahead of Dutch club Willem II, who are eager to take him back to the country where he learned the game.

In other Liverpool news, the club are set to sell Klopp’s first signing for a £20million-plus fee after his quit plan is revealed.
