Liverpool midfielder, Naby Keita, to leave club in summer

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is set to leave Jurgen Klopp’s side in the summer after the club failed to reach an agreement with the player on a contract extension.

The Reds are unwilling to let the player leave for free because it could result in a financial loss.

Keita reportedly wanted a pay cut for his absence due to his injury, which limited him to only 80 league games.

The 27-year-old midfielder joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £ 52 million.

The club is targeting World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez and Jude Bellingham from Dortmund as possible replacements for the Guinea international.

Also leaving the club in the summer are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arthur Melo who is on loan from Italian giants Juventus.

The Merseyside team has been out of form since the club football returned from the international break losing three matches (including the Carabao Cup loss to Manchester City) and winning just two with a draw since the restart.

Liverpool made the finals of the prestigious Champions League final last season and are 19 points away from first at 9th after losing 3-nil to Brighton over the weekend.
