Liverpool Winger Set To Leave The Club: Good Move For All Parties Concerned?

According to a recent claim made by Goal’s Liverpool correspondent, Neil Jones, Liverpool forward Bobby Adekanye is in talks to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of this campaign. In his recent tweet, Jones also mentions that the Reds Under-23 player will seal a move to Lazio when his contract at Anfield runs out in the summer.

Jones gave an update on Twitter: ‘Bobby Adekanye’s move to Lazio is edging closer. He’ll be leaving #LFC on a free this summer, and a deal with the Serie A side is almost complete. He has another option on the table but Italy preferred destination.’

The 20-year-old has been an integral member of the Liverpool Under-23 side but is yet to make a first-team appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s senior team. Hence, it is not a surprise that he has been tipped to leave Anfield this summer as the winger needs more game time on the pitch.

Adekanye grew up playing at AFC Ajax’s prestigious academy before joining Barcelona’s La Masia back in 2011. After spending three years in Catalunya, he had a season-long loan spell with the PSV Eindhoven youth team before joining Liverpool in the summer of 2015. The Dutch winger worked his way up the youth ranks of the Merseyside club but has failed to get any first-team opportunities thus far.

Klopp has shown no indication that he intends to incorporate the Dutch youngster in his senior squad so his departure from Anfield on a free transfer at the end of this campaign might be a good move for all parties.

Adekanye is highly versatile and can operate in multiple positions across the frontline. He primarily plays as a right winger but is capable of featuring in the number 10 position or on the left flank. He could turn out to be a useful asset for a team like Lazio. At 20, the Netherlands sensation still has a lot of years ahead of him to develop his game and prove his worth at the highest level.

As far as Liverpool are concerned, Klopp is better of concentrating on recruiting more proven players so that he has a strong enough squad to challenge in all competitions next season.
