Reports from Germany have claimed that Naby Keïta could see his spell with Liverpool come to an end this summer, with a return to RB Leipzig possible (via Bild).
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds will be looking to overhaul several senior players in the summer transfer window, including Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne who will not be offered new contracts.
Transfer talks between the Merseyside outfit and Timo Werner are also ramping up, with Simon Johnson reporting that Liverpool could be close to signing the RB Leipzig star.
The 25-year-old has struggled in his time at Anfield so far, with persistent injury problems meaning that he has missed 27 matches for the Reds since his arrival in the summer of 2018 (Transfermarkt).
A lot of fans are shocked at the reports that it could be curtains for Keïta, with one fan branding the Guinean ‘better than Gini and Ox’. Other fans can’t quite believe the ‘mad’ news that a player who hasn’t been at the club long could be leaving already.
No got to keep him, massive talent who WILL COME GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

You would be mad to sell Keita.

Why people want to sell him makes no sense, he’s clearly a talented player who has had it unlucky so far , if he doesn’t want to leave then I see no reason to let him go. He could be world class for us if he preforms as he did for Leipzig!

If keita leaves, i will blame klopp for that. Because, Klopp doesn’t give him more playing time but keita is better than gini and ox.

Depends who replaces him but I am reluctant. He’s got talent and worth persevering with.

What do you think, Liverpool fans? Should the club cash in on Keïta or give him another chance?
