Carlo or Klopp: Who is right for Reds?


Diakite targets Liverpool summer move

Lazio defender Mobido Diakite says Liverpool are his “first choice” once his contract expires with the Italian club in June.

Diakite, 25, was expected to leave the Biancocelesti this month after losing his place in Vladimir Petkovic’s starting line-up.

However, now his agent believes the player will see out his current deal with Lazio before moving on this summer.

“Liverpool are our first choice for June, but there is no hurry” agent Ulisse Savini told Sky Italia.

“We’ll see in the next few days, however, it would be very difficult to say no to a club like that.”

The Anfield club may yet attempt to strike a cut-price deal for the French-born player, given he is so out of favour with the Serie A side.

Diakite has been with the Rome-based club for six years, following a €300,000 switch from Pescara back in 2006. He has made almost 100 appearances for Lazio and was a vital part of their 2009 Coppa Italia-winning side, but has played just one game under Petkovic this season.
