Liverpool are constantly linked with Guinean international and Leipzig star Naby Keita. Will the Merseysiders succeed in signing him before the start of the new season? We shall see.
Recently, Italian super agent Giovanni Branchini told Gazzetta dello Sport (via CalcioMercato) that Keita has got a release clause which could be activated in the next summer’s transfer window.
Moreover, he stated that as far as this summer is concerned, the Bundesliga club do not want to offload him, however, if he does end up leaving then it will be for Liverpool.
“RB Leipzig don’t want to sell him now but if he leaves he will be joining Liverpool.”
The 22-year-old African star is a versatile talent, who can be deployed anywhere in the midfield. In the last campaign, he was solid in the DM role, creative in the CM role and also productive as an AM.
Overall, he made 32 appearances in all competitions for Leipzig last season and directly contributed in 16 goals (8 goals and 8 assists).
Liverpool already have midfield players like Lucas, Lallana, Milner, Wijnaldum, Can and captain Henderson. In your opinion, should they really sign Keita?
