The Daily Mail is reporting that Liverpool are ready to make an improved bid to sign the 22-year-old star, who become their top target in the summer transfer window.
The same article reveals that Keita wants a move to Liverpool despite RB Leipzig’s refusal to sell the Guinea international to the Merseyside outfit so far this summer.
Liverpool had a bid in the region of £66m turned down earlier this month as the Reds display their willingness to smash their club-record transfer fee to sign the African star.
The Merseyside outfit started their summer transfer business with the signing of Egypt international Mohamed Salah in a £36.7m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma.
Liverpool have also recruited England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke in a free transfer from Premier League champions Chelsea.
The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a long-awaited return to the Champions League in Jurgen Klopp’s first full campaign in charge.
