Liverpool fans wish youngster well as he posts heartfelt departure message

Bobby Adekanye will depart Liverpool in the summer and is widely expected to sign for Lazio.

Liverpool youngster Bobby Adekanye has posted an emotional goodbye message to the club’s supporters on Twitter.

The 20-year-old failed to make a first-team appearance for the Reds after joining from Barcelona in 2015. This season he played 13 times for the club’s Under-23 outfit, scoring three goals.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Adekanye will pen a four-year contract at Lazio, although that is yet to be officially confirmed by the Italian giants.

The Dutchman is capable of playing as a number ten or on either flank. He was an highly-rated member of the club’s academy but has opted to depart with his contract due to expire.

Adekanye posted his goodbye message on Twitter earlier today:

The attacker claims that he arrived at Anfield as a boy and will leave as a man. He will probably hope that his experiences with the club’s academy teams will put him in good shape as he attempts to get into Lazio’s first-team.

Following his decision to post such a heartfelt message to his Twitter, Liverpool fans were quick to thank him for his efforts with the academy.
