Keita Balde Diao continues to reject all other options, as the Lazio striker only wants Juventus, according to Il Messaggero.
His contract is due to expire in June 2018, so a summer sale is necessary to avoid losing him as a free agent next year.
While Milan, Inter, Napoli and Monaco have all shown an interest in Keita, who is valued at €30m, Keita has remained steadfast.
Il Messaggero newspaper reports this morning that Keita continues to turn down all other options, because he has his heart set on Juve.
This makes the situation somewhat awkward going into Lazio’s Italian Super Cup clash with Juventus on August 13.
The Bianconeri are fully aware of the situation and won’t raise their bid beyond €15m plus bonuses.
