Atleti hold talks with Keita?

The agent of Lazio forward Keita Balde Diao is in Madrid to hold talks with Atletico Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo, the Senegalese forward will leave the Biancocelesti this summer and his agent Rafael Coto has travelled to the Spanish capital to meet with Atletico representatives.

Keita’s deal at the Stadio Olimpico expires in June 2018 and the Rome club are willing to cash on him, with Sevilla, Juventus and Milan all linked with a move.

The 22-year-old is Spanish-born and progressed through La Masia’s ranks in Barcelona, leading to greater links with a move to a La Liga club.

The forward has netted 16 Serie A goals in only 21 appearances this campaign and it is possible he could help replace the rumoured outgoing Antoine Griezmann at Atleti.
