Midfielder wants to leave Leipzig for Liverpool

Liverpool target Naby Keita may have dropped a huge hint he sees his future at Anfield.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has pinpointed RB Leipzig midfielder Keita as a key element of his summer squad strengthening plans as he prepares for a return to the Champions League.

Liverpool are prepared to spend £70million on the Guinea international, who was voted the second-best player in the Bundesliga last season after helping his side finish runners-up to champions Bayern Munich.

While Keita has reportedly informed Leipzig of his desire to move to Liverpool, his club have been consistent in their public pronouncements the 22-year-old is not for sale at any price.

But the player has reignited speculation over his preferred route by 'liking' an Instagram post that includes him being mocked up in a Liverpool shirt.



Keita was congratulated by the guineebuzz account on being named the African player of the season following a vote on website StarAfrica's Orange Football Club, sponsored by the mobile phone operator.

Included in the montage was a photo of Keita in a Liverpool shirt along with his inclusion playing for the Reds in the FIFA 17 video game.

New Liverpool signing Mohamed Salah was among the players Keita beat to the award.

Liverpool to spend £70million on a Guinea international midfielder


Every player has their price. But sometimes that price is very high. Very high indeed.

According to German newspaper BILD this morning, Naby Keita could cost Liverpool around £70million to prise from RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga club are determined not to sell, and the price-tag reflects their stance.

Jurgen Klopp has made Keita a priority target as he looks to add to his options in the centre of midfield this summer.

The Bundesliga ace has put in a series of impressive performances this season, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in just 29 league starts.

His fine performances have helped Leipzig qualify for the Champions League after finishing as runners-up to title winners Bayern Munich.

Jürgen Klopp has identified the 22-year-old central midfielder as a key target after completing the £39million club record signing of the Egypt international Mohamed Salah from Roma last week.

Despite Leipzig’s sporting director, Ralf Rangnick, and chief executive, Oliver Mintzlaff, publicly insisting that neither Keïta nor the Sweden forward Emil Forsberg will be sold, Leipzig are believed to be demanding £70million for Keïta, who joined for around £10million last year.

“It would be negligent to give away one of our key players now,” Mintzlaff said last week. “Emil and Naby are both extremely talented players with a lot of potential. We are delighted that we as a club can keep up with their development and that we can prove ourselves in Champions League in the upcoming season.”

That sort of figure is likely to price the Reds out of a move but it remains to be seen if Liverpool can negotiate that figure down.
