Once again this summer, Valencia CF have turned their attention to Keita Balde to reinforce the 'Che' side's attack. The player was a long-standing desire of the Valencian side, who have intensified negotiations this summer, according to the newspaper 'AS'.

The Senegalese player arrived as a free agent at Italian club Cagliari. Now, after their relegation to Serie B, Valencia would have a good opportunity to bring him into the team, as the striker is free.

In addition, the player would have the approval of Gattuso with a view to his signing for Valencia. Valencia's complicated financial situation is delaying the operation. He is a striker who has dual nationality: Spanish-Senegalese, as he was born in Spain.

In terms of his performances last season, he made 26 Serie A appearances, scoring three goals and providing one assist for Cagliari. Very poor numbers considering the quality he has.
