Liverpool have been interested in signing Naby Keita for a long time now and last night, a renowned German source suggested that the Reds actually made a move to sign him.
According to Bild, Klopp is desperate to hire the services of the African star from Leipzig and the Anfield club made an offer worth 65million euros to secure their club record signing.
However, the German source suggests that the bid was rejected by the Bundesliga club, who do not want to sell him this summer.
As per British source Mirror, Liverpool are likely preparing to make an improve offer for the versatile midfielder but the player may have to come up with a transfer request to sign for the Merseysiders
Keita is a tireless worker in the center of the park and Klopp needs someone like him to help Liverpool dominate the midfield battles next season.
Naby can operate as a defensive midfielder, creative central midfielder and also a productive attacking midfielder.
The 22-year-old Guinean international was in top form for the German side and he is now rated around 70 million pounds ($91million) (BBC). In your opinion, should Klopp splash 70 million pounds to sign him?
