Naby Keita, RB Leipzig Talks About Future Rumoured

Joe Gomez

GETTY Joe Gomez could leave Liverpool this summer

The Mirror has previously reported that Jurgen Klopp has made the RB Leipzig midfielder his top transfer target and could be ready to smash Liverpool's transfer record for the second time this summer as Keita is now valued at £70million.

Keita has 18 senior global caps for Guinea, and former manager of that national team Camara insists that a deal is imminent due to Leipzig's transfer activity. The assumption makes sense as earlier in the day, we covered a post (via Titi Camara) claiming that the Guinea midfielder actually wants to join Liverpool.

Keita now plays for Red Bull Leipzig in Bundesliga and impressed during his debut season with the side, so much so that Jürgen Klopp is desperate to bring him to the club.

The Merseysiders have been linked with Naby Keita for a long time now, they should not waste more time and must splash the cash to secure his signature.

Instead, it's written by WhoScored's Ben McAleer, who was providing the newspaper what has to be said a very good statistics article on Keita.

This could prove helpful to Liverpool's cause given that the pair's representative Bjorn Bezemer knows how to force through a move against Rangnick's will - although there is no indication Keita will take the same approach as Mane.

Those at Anfield are now stepping up their efforts to get a deal done, with a club-record €80 million approach reportedly in the pipeline. Leipzig will drive a hard bargain even if Keita wants to leave and whether FSG will pull the trigger on a whopping £70m deal remains to be seen.

Their financial muscle puts them in a strong position, but they need to ensure that the likes of Keita and Forsberg stay at the Red Bull Arena.
