Keita Balde: Here's Why Liverpool Are Chasing Ace Ex-Barça Starlet

According to Express, Liverpool are chasing Keita Balde Diao, Lazio's ex-Barcelona wonderkid, but the Romans have told them mean Scousers that they'll need to cough up £24million to secure him.

Ouch. That's a 1150% increase on the £300,000 they bought him for back in 2011.

As great as he is - blessed with pace and trickery, the 19-year-old is still a raw talent and that's one HELLUVA pricetag for a player who only scored five goals in 23 appearances in Serie A last term.

That said, Rodgers does need striking options - is the Lazio striker the right option?
