Liverpool’s hopes of signing midfielder Naby Keita from German side RB Leipzig have been boosted as he has been told he can leave the club – but only for the right price.

Keita has been targeted by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp as he continues to rebuild the side. However, RB Leipzig are said to not be considering bids of less than £70 million for the 22-year-old Guinea international, according to The Guardian.

Keita has refused to sign a new deal with RB Leipzig, despite having negotiations over one, but has 3 years left on his current deal. RB Leipzig’s chief executive, Oliver Mintzlaff, has said Keita will n https://gty.im/674791112 https://gty.im/674791112 ot be sold. “It would be negligent to give away one of our key players now,” he said last week.

In addition, RB Leipzig will be embarking on their maiden Champions League campaign next season, after finishing runners-up in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool are understood to be considering making an offer of £50 million for Keita, so it appears there is a big gap between the clubs in terms of valuation. There may well be some serious negotiating to come if a deal is to happen.
