Naby Keita has dropped a massive hint he will leave RB Leipzig this summer amid reports he is set for a £70million move to Liverpool.
The Guinean midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield this summer, with reports stating the Reds could be forced to shatter their transfer record to land the player.
Bundesliga outfit Leipzig are determined to resist all offers for their player though and have steadfastly refused to entertain any bids for Keita, who on Tuesday night was compared to N’Golo Kante.
However, Keita appears ready to move on after apparently bidding his farewells to the club he joined in a £12.75m move from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg last summer.
“I love Leipzig, and I will never forget this city,” he is quoted by Die Welt, hinting that he could soon move on.
Keita reveals Liverpool talks
Keita also revealed for the first time that he held talks with Liverpool last summer prior to his move to Leipzig.
The player also admitted to speaking with three other Premier League sides too with Arsenal, Manchester City and Southampton among his suitors.
Keita added, however, that he does have doubts about the price tag Leipzig are placing on him and feels he’s not yet at the level his club are putting him at.
“I hope that I am at the level in two, three years that I could play for one of the very big clubs,” he said, before following up with the following worry claim: “This includes Barcelona, but it also includes Real Madrid or Manchester City!”
