Keita is earning rave reviews in Austria with Salzburg after helping the club secure their third straight league championship.

The Guinea international has scored 12 goals and laid on eight assists in the Bundesliga this season to alert a number of clubs across Europe’s bigger leagues.

Scouts from the Premier League have been flocking to Austria to keep tabs on Keita, and the likes of Palace, Bournemouth and Norwich are expected to have him watched him in action against Grodig on Wednesday.
