Liverpool under-23 winger Bobby Adekanye will leave the club this summer when his current contract runs out.

The 20-year-old arrived on Merseyside from Barcelona youth ranks following a loan spell at PSV Eindhoven, and despite showing flashes of brilliance for the under-23s of recent, his progress has been hampered by injuries which have also caused a lack of consistency.

Nevertheless, Liverpool handed Adekanye a three-year deal which he has since rejected.

The Nigerian-born Netherlands youth international told Voetbalzone that he rejected the new contract because of his disappointment with being left out of manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the last pre-season tour of the USA.

Adekanye has already agreed to join Serie A outfit Lazio at the end of the season having held discussions with the Italian club over a five-year contract.

The winger has trained with Klopp’s side on a couple of occasions this season, but hasn’t impressed the German enough to earn his senior debut like three (Curtis Jones, Rafa Camacho and Ki-Jana Hoever) of his under-23s teammates did against Wolverhampton Wanderers in January’s F.A Cup loss.
