Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been wanting to sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig for a rather long time but the German club have been stubbornly refusing them. But now it looks like Klopp is preparing one final bid for the Guinean International and if even that is turned down by Leipzig then the Reds will turn their focus elsewhere.
It is being reported that Liverpool are preparing a mega bid which is expected to be well above £70 million in the hope that such a crazy sum of money will change the mindsets of the Leipzig management.
RB Leipzig have secured Champions League football for the first team in their club’s history and one of the keys players who helped achieve this feat was Naby Keita. And now as the club is about to play in their first Champions League campaign, Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has made it very clear that he will not sell his best players, no matter how much money is put on the table.
Rumours also have it that Leipzig have already rejected two bids from Liverpool and this might just be the final bid that the Premier League club is willing to place. But Leipzig’s sporting director has gone on record to say that there is no exit clause in the Guinean International’s contract and not even £100 million will persuade the club to sell him.
The reports also suggest that Jurgen Klopp is willing to look elsewhere if the Naby Keita deal crumbles. And Schalke’s 22-year-old midfielder, Leon Goretzka looks to be the next best option for the Liverpool boss, even though Bayern Munich look to be the favourites in signing the German.
