Naby Keita refuses to renew his contract with Liverpool
Naby Keita refuses to renew his contract with Liverpool, English press reports revealed that Liverpool international midfielder Naby Keita is not currently interested in renewing his contract with the Reds, and it appears that he is on his way to leave Anfield.
The 27-year-old has played 116 games with the Reds since his arrival from Red Bull Salzburg in 2018, 40 of them during the 2021-22 season, with only 12 months remaining on his contract.
And according to the “Sport Mall” website, Jurgen Klopp’s team is keen to sign a new contract with the midfielder, but he is not currently interested in staying with the club.
The report claims that Juventus are keen to sign Keita this summer and could offer Adrien Rabiot in the deal to Liverpool.
Keita played 23 Premier League games with Liverpool last season, contributing three goals and making one in this period.
Liverpool are concerned about losing the Guinea international on a free transfer next summer and are therefore open to allowing him to leave for the right price during the current market.
Liverpool is currently preparing to start the pre-season tour, as the Reds begin their season against their arch-rivals Manchester United on July 12.
Klopp’s side will also face Crystal Palace, RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg in pre-season before facing Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield on July 30.
