Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is set to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires, with Inter Milan interested.
According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, Naby Keita who will be a free agent in the summer and is a target for Inter Milan. The Serie A giants are hoping to bring in midfield reinforcements at the end of the season. And they have identified the Liverpool midfielder as a target.
The 28-year-old has had a disappointing spell at Liverpool since joining the club for a fee of around £52.7 million from Red Bull Leipzig. His time at Anfield has been plagued with injuries, and he has not been able to justify the money Liverpool spent on him.
The player is set to move on in pursuit of a new adventure at the end of the season. And a move to Inter Milan could be ideal for him. The lower intensity of Serie A football could suit his style of play and physical capabilities.
According to the report from Gazzetta, Inter Milan have already spoken to the player’s representatives regarding a possible move during the summer transfer window. It will be interesting to see if they can convince the 28-year-old to move to San Siro at the end of the season.
Keita has shown his quality at Liverpool in bits and parts and could prove to be a very useful addition to the Inter Milan midfield. When he is fit, the 28-year-old can be an exceptional performer. And he can add a new dimension to Inter Milan engine room.
The Guinean international is an expert in controlling the play and driving the team forward with flair and creativity. Furthermore, he is in his peak years, and Inter Milan will be able to extract the best out of him in the coming seasons.
Signing the Liverpool midfielder on a free transfer would also be a major bargain for the Serie A outfit. Inter Milan are going through financial difficulties and they could certainly use bargain acquisition like Keita.
Meanwhile, players like Marcelo Brozovic and Nicolo Barella have been linked with moves away from Inter Milan at the end of the season. And they will need to bring in adequate replacements. Keita seems like an ideal fit for the Italian giants, and it remains to be seen whether the two parties can secure an agreement soon.
