Seydou Keita, the former Barcelona and Valencia midfielder, is reported to be edging towards a free transfer move to Roma. Keita will become available next month following the expiration of his Valencia deal, and has also been linked with Liverpool.

The 34-year-old spent only six months at the Mestalla after signing a short-term deal following a failed move to the Chinese Super League, but he will not be retained by the Spanish club. It is claimed that he will instead try his hand in Italy, with Roma likely to be the club of choice.

According to the Daily Express, this news may arrive as a blow to Liverpool as Brendan Rodgers had monitored the Mali international as he considers potential options to boost his Anfield midfield ranks during the summer transfer window.

Liverpool are expected to reinforce from front to back over the coming months, with the club’s return to the rigours of Champions League football set to place a greater strain on Rodgers’ squad. Rickie Lambert was the first acquisition of the summer, joining from Southampton, and Liverpool are set to be busy indeed.

Adam Lallana appears set to follow his former Saints teammate to Merseyside, but Keita is unlikely to be among the signings made by the club.
