In the summer, Naby Keita will be a free agent. And according to a report from Sport Bild, Bundesliga powerhouses Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are interested in signing the struggling Liverpool midfielder on a free transfer. It is said that the former RB Leipzig midfielder is eager to return to the Bundesliga. The prospect of the 27-year-old returning to his previous club could prove to be enticing.
Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig keen on Naby Keita
In 2018, Keita joined Liverpool for around $52.7 million. Nonetheless, the move did not benefit either party. The Guinean midfielder’s tenure at Anfield has been marred by injuries, preventing him from making substantial contributions. Keita played his greatest football with RB Leipzig in Germany. And the Bundesliga club desired to sign the player in January due to Dani Olio’s injury. Yet, Sport Bild reports that Klopp vetoed the midfielder’s exit in the middle of the season. Nonetheless, Keita will leave Liverpool as a free agent in the summer, leaving the club with enormous losses on their $52.7 million investment.
There have been rumours regarding a possible contract extension. But, the two parties have not yet reached an agreement. If he is able to overcome his fitness concerns, Keita has the potential to become a major player for both German clubs. In addition to being a brilliant passer, the Guinean midfielder is tactically astute and has exceptional dribbling skills and close control for driving the team forward.
Meanwhile, it is anticipated that Borussia Dortmund will lose Jude Bellingham at the end of the season. They wish to replace the Englishman with the 27-year-old Liverpool midfielder. Liverpool is interested in signing Dortmund’s Bellingham. It will be intriguing to see if the two clubs can reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
