Naby Keita has made it clear that he wants to join Liverpool this summer after meeting with representatives of his current club RB Leipzig, according to journalist Sega Diallo.

The Guinea international has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks as Jurgen Klopp looks to shore up his midfield options at the Merseyside club.

There is yet to be any official confirmation of Liverpool’s interest in Keita but it seems that the Guinea international is one of the Reds’ top midfield targets this summer.

Now, journalist Diallo has taken to Twitter to claim that Keita recently expressed his desire to sign for Liverpool in a meeting with Bundesliga club Leipzig.

Diallo wrote on Twitter: “During the last meeting that took place on Wednesday, #NabyKeita accompanied by his representatives, reiterated his desire to join the Reds.”

Liverpool are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as the Reds prepare for a return to the Champions League next season.

However, the Merseyside outfit have so far only signed attackers Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah ahead of next season.
