are on high alert following the absence of transfer target Balde Diao from ’s tunning 3-2 Supeercoppa victory over rivals Juventus.

The Senegal played no part in the clash after being sidelined with injury, however his non-attendance alerted the attention of both West Ham and with both clubs linked with a move for the star this summer.

Keita is reportedly keen to leave the Serie A club, and has allegedly handed in a transfer request and refused to a sign a new deal in an attempt to push a move away from Stadio Olimpico through. Keita has only one year left on his current contract with the Italian giants.

The 22-year-old scored an impressive 16 times in 31 appearances for ’s side.
