Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is set to leave the team at the end of the current campaign.

The 27-year-old midfielder will become a free agent at the end of the current campaign. And Liverpool has reportedly ended contract negotiations with the Guinean international.

According to reports, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wanted to keep the player. But the club asked that he take a pay cut due to his history of poor fitness.

The Reds have decided to let Keita leave the team as a free agent because it appears that he is unwilling to do so.

The midfielder left RB Leipzig in 2018 for a reported £52.7 million deal. But due to his ongoing injury issues, he has been a disappointing purchase.

Naby Keita to leave Liverpool

Despite his undeniable talent, the 27-year-old has only made three substitute appearances in the Premier League this year. And he continues to be an inconsistent option for the Reds.

James Milner and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain are among the players who Liverpool will likely lose on free transfers. In the upcoming months, it will be intriguing to see if Liverpool can find suitable successors.

Keita will be hoping that by moving abroad, he can restart his career. The international from Guinea is unquestionably a top-tier athlete who has only begun his prime. If he can overcome his ongoing injury issues, he may be an important player for the majority of top clubs.

Speaking on Sky, Paton said:

“This line came into us yesterday from Sky in Germany and they’re reporting that Naby Keita is unhappy with his current situation at Liverpool and he wants more playing time.

There were talks over a contract extension, those have since stopped and a departure before the transfer deadline two weeks today hasn’t been ruled out.

He’s set to have talks with the club. We understand that these talks and these discussions are ongoing at the moment with Keita and his representatives.”
