Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing cut-price Naby Keita move

Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing cut-price Naby Keita move -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing up a potential cut-price move for Naby Keita.

The Lowdown: Out of contract

Keita is out of contract at Liverpool in the summer, meaning that he can leave as a free agent, or sign for another club for a cut-price in the January transfer window.

The central midfielder has been limited to just five minutes of football in the Community Shield so far this season, and has been suffering from an ongoing hamstring injury.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per Milan Live, the St. James’ Park outfit are eyeing a potential move for Keita, but will face competition from a number of clubs for his signature.

AC Milan, West Ham United and Borussia Dortmund are also thought to be interested in signing him, so there could be a four-way tussle come January or next summer.

The Verdict: Avoid

Once dubbed ‘world-class‘ by Reds team-mate Virgil van Dijk, and ‘one of the best‘ midfielders that he has ever seen by manager Jurgen Klopp, Keita has been a good servant to the Anfield outfit, winning both the Premier League and UEFA Champions League with them.

However, his career has been plagued by injury, and judging by this season, his record does not look like it will get any better.

Currently earning £120,000-per-week on Merseyside, it is just not worth the risk for the Magpies, who can already call upon the likes of Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton in the middle of the park.
