Liverpool: ‘Nothing advanced’ with Naby Keita and new deal

Liverpool: 'Nothing advanced' with Naby Keita and new deal - Follow up

Journalist Fabrizio Romano says that there is ‘nothing advanced’ between Liverpool and Naby Keita in terms of a potential new contract.

The Lowdown: Talks stalled

It was reported back in November that the Reds ‘pulled the plug’ on talks with Keita over a new deal, with his contract set to expire in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been linked with a swap deal involving Keita and Inter Milan midfield Marcelo Brozovic this month, so it will be interesting to see how the next week goes.

The Latest: ‘Nothing advanced’

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Romano says that there is ‘nothing advanced’ in terms of Keita and a potential new deal, but he has issued a ‘let’s see’ claim:

“I think there are chances for him to leave on a free. From what I’m told, at the moment, there is nothing advanced between Liverpool and Naby Keita. So let’s see if Liverpool will maybe change their mind. That’s happened with [N’Golo] Kante and Chelsea.

“Kante and Chelsea was really complicated in November and December and now they’re back to discussing a new deal, so let’s see if Liverpool will do something like that.”

The Verdict: Cash in

Unfortunately for Keita, his constant injury problems has meant that he has not been available enough since he moved to Anfield, and has only been able to make nine senior appearances in total across all competitions so far this term.

On £120,000-per-week, he is costing the Merseyside club a lot of money in wages too, and this next week provides the only opportunity to get a transfer fee for him, assuming that he does not sign a new contract.

As well as Brozoic, they have also been linked with moves for the likes of Jude Bellingham and Matheus Nunes, so Liverpool would not miss Keita much if they could bring an elite midfielder in.
