Lazio winger Keita Balde Diao will turn down more lucrative offers from Chelsea and Liverpool to make a move to Inter Milan, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The Italian website reports that Lazio president Claudio Lotito will meet with Keita’s agent Roberto Calend today in order to table a last ditch contract offer to keep the Senegalese international at the Stadio Olimpico. It is believed the offer will be rejected by Keita and a bid from Inter will then be proposed.

The forward has just a year left on his contract with Lazio but Inter are said to be prepared to offer €20m plus €5m in bonuses to land Keita, with a five year deal worth €3m a season. The good relationship between Inter Director of Football Walter Sabatini and Lazio president Lotito should allows negotiations to run smoothly, Tuttomercatoweb reports.

Juventus, Chelsea and Liverpool are also believed to be interested in Keita but the player is reportedly keen to join Inter, who are looking to replace Manchester United bound Ivan Perisic
