Liverpool: Dharmesh Sheth makes Naby Keita exit claim

Liverpool: Dharmesh Sheth makes Naby Keita exit claim -Follow up

Liverpool could look to sell midfielder Naby Keita in January if they decide not to extend his current Anfield contract, according to Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Injury history

Keita has had multiple off-field struggles during his time on Merseyside and has missed 85 games through illness and injury in recent years.

The 27-year-old has only managed an appearance in the Community Shield during the current campaign and is out of contract at the end of the season.

He has been linked with a 2023 exit as a result, with the likes of AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle United and West Ham named as potential destinations.

The Latest: Sheth’s comments

Talking to GiveMeSport, Sheth believes that the Reds could look to part ways with Keita in the New Year, should they decide against entering fresh contract discussions.

“He has had his injury problems throughout his career at Liverpool.

“There have been links once more to a return to the Bundesliga, but he is with the Liverpool squad now in Dubai and he has resumed training with them.

“It is definitely one to keep an eye on because if Liverpool decide not to extend that contract, then there might even be business to be done in January.”

The Verdict: One to watch?

Jurgen Klopp appears to be extremely keen on bolstering his midfield ranks in 2023, with rumours over moves for both Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez.

Therefore, you’d expect that an exit for Keita could be a real possibility given his fitness struggles at the club. Receiving some cash for his signature may well be welcomed by FSG as opposed to losing him for nothing in the summer, so a January departure could be one to keep an eye on over the coming weeks.
