Liverpool FC are signing a “superb” player in the form of Naby Keita this summer, according to his RB Leipzig team-mate Yussuf Poulsen.

The Reds agreed a deal to bring the Guinea international to Anfield last summer and the midfielder will officially become a Liverpool FC player at the end of the current campaign.

Keita has been earning plenty of rave reviews for his fine performances for Leipzig in recent months.

He has scored 10 goals and made seven assists in all competitions for club and country and he will be hoping to stake his claim for a regular spot in the first team at Anfield next season.

Keita has struggled with disciplinary issues this season and has been sent off three times for Leipzig so far this season.

However, his team-mate Poulsen is backing Keita to be a huge success at Anfield when the 23-year-old completes his move to Liverpool FC in the summer transfer window.

Speaking in an interview with Omnisport, Keita said: “I think that most of the fans of Liverpool already watched him play. He is a superb player on a very high level.

“He shows what he can do with the ball even if it’s not going well for the team at this time.

“His last goal against Hoffenheim where he fakes out three people. He hit the post and then the ball went in.

“There are not many players in the world who can do that kind of thing.

“He is one of the few and not only the fans, but also his team-mates, should be looking forward to that.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC are currently preparing for their crunch Champions League semi-final second leg showdown against AS Roma in Italy on Wednesday night.

The Reds were 5-2 winners in the first leg at Anfield last week.
