Liverpool are set to return with a third offer to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita this summer, according to reports in England.

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.
