Naby Keita is all set to leave Premier League giants Liverpool in the summer as a free agent.

According to Florian Plettenberg, the 27-year-old Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is on the verge of leaving the club. His contract at the club ends in the summer and he is all set to depart as a free agent. A lot of clubs are interested in signing the Guinea international.

Keita is unlikely to extend his contract with Liverpool. He has a few months left in his contract and is exploring possible options for a move in the summer. The Guinea international joined the Premier League club back in July 2018 from RB Leipzig.

He has been at the club for over four and a half years. And, he has played an important role in helping them win the Champions League as well as the Premier League. Of late he has had a tough time in England because of injuries.

During his time at the club, Keita has featured in 127 matches for Liverpool. In the ongoing season, he has only played 11 matches in total, 6 of which were in the Premier League. He was not available for a majority of the Merseyside club’s fixtures. The 27-year-old midfielder has missed a total of 21 matches in all competitions in the ongoing season due to injury.

Keita recently returned from injury and has started in the last four fixtures for the club. But, with his contract running out in the summer, Jurgen Klopp will be in a spot of bother. He will have to look for possible replacements. The midfielder arrived at the club for a fee of over £50 million. His departure for free in the summer will raise a few questions about Liverpool’s transfer strategy.

The former Leipzig midfielder hasn’t had that great a time at Anfield. Injuries have spoiled the party for him at the Merseyside club. While he has done well in patches. And, he surely has the talent to revive his career. A move away from the club might help him start fresh.

The £130,000-a-week player had an offer from Turkish club Galatasaray. But, he has decided against joining them. There is interest from across Europe for his services. And, according to the reports he is open to returning to Germany, where he was playing before he joined his current club.
