Naby Keita will blossom into a brilliant player for Liverpool FC, former Arsenal star Paul Mariner says.

The Guinea international completed a move to Liverpool FC in a £48m deal from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in June.

Liverpool FC agreed a fee to sign the African star in the 2017 summer transfer window before Keita spent one final season at RB Leipzig.

Keita made his debut for the Merseyside outfit in Liverpool FC’s 4-0 win over West Ham United at Anfield in their season opener.

The African star made an assist in Liverpool FC’s rout of the Hammers to earn the man of the match award.

Liverpool FC eased to a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park as Keita once again stole the show with a number of bright moments.

ESPN FC pundit Mariner believes Liverpool FC star Naby Keita will prove to be an excellent signing.

“There is so much more to come from this squad,” Mariner told ESPN FC.

“We are scratching the surface with what we’re going to see from Keita. He looks a fantastic player.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

Keita impressed during two seasons at RB Leipzig after he moved to the German club from Red Bull Salzburg in 2016.
