Liverpool’s star midfielder Naby Keita has difficulty finding his way out of the frequent injuries. The injuries have cost him his place in the starting line-up.
When Keta was announced as a Liverpool player more than four years ago from RB Leipzig, he was highly anticipated to become a midfield stalwart. Furthermore, Jürgen Klopp has lately stated that he is a massive fan of the Guinean. However, the reality is that any potential momentum he may have tried to develop while donning the red shirt has been wrecked by injury.
Instead, Keta has evolved into a player of flashes—a fantastic goal here, an excellent play there, but not consistently. The significant sum of money Liverpool paid him, approximately £52 million, hasn’t been justified by those occasions.
Liverpool midfielder Keita wants a more extended contract
With Keita approaching the end of his contract at the age of 27, Liverpool FC must decide what to do with him as soon as possible. Borussia Dortmund is reportedly thinking about trying to recruit Keita as a free agent next summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
“Borussia Dortmund is among three to four clubs around Europe interested in Naby Keïta in case he becomes a free agent.”
“The situation is still open with Liverpool. Naby wants guarantees to sign a new deal at Anfield so that it will be decided in the next months.”
In January, Liverpool and Dortmund may reach a Jude Bellingham agreement that includes a deal for Naby Keita. According to a report by Sport Bild,
“The Merseyside giants could attempt to thrash out a swap deal that would see the two midfielders moving in opposite directions.”
The renewal talks would resume in the coming months. However, given his injury record, it is hard to predict if Liverpool will actually hand him a more extended contract.
