Liverpool ready to make bid for £70m-rated 22-year-old – report
Liverpool are ready to make official their interest in signing midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig this summer, say reports
Liverpool are lining up a big-money bid to try and sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds are ready to make their interest in the 22-year-old midfielder official by tabling a bid for the £70m-rated star.
The same report claims that Liverpool want to find out whether RB Leipzig would be willing to let Keita leave the club after just one season this summer.
The story also claims that Jurgen Klopp has identified Keita as Liverpool’s top remaining summer transfer target – and that the Merseyside club are willing to back him with a big-money offer for the Guinea international.
Keita was one of the Bundesliga’s top performers last season, with the midfielder scoring eight goals and making seven assists.
Liverpool have already completed the signing of winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma this summer as well as tying up a deal for young Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke.
The Reds are aiming to further bolster their squad this summer as they prepare for a return to the Champions League next season.
