Liverpool lose patience as Klopp prepares to offload £54m flop

Posted by

According to recent reports, Liverpool has lost patience in midfielder Naby Keita and could sell him this summer, so long as the right offer comes in.

That’s according to a recent report from ESPN, who claim manager Jurgen Klopp is open to seeing several fringe players depart Anfield during this summer’s transfer window.

Keita, along with the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Loris Karius, are all understood to be up for sale as the Reds look to raise funds in order to make new signings.

Arguably the highest-profile star among those set for the axe is Keita.

After agreeing to join Klopp in Merseyside from RB Leipzig in 2018, in a deal worth £54m, the midfielder, who has been a major disappointment, is now set to be sacrificed.

Naby Keita could leave Liverpool this summer.

Since arriving at the club, Keita has gone on to start just 32 Premier League appearances in the last three seasons.

Although it has not yet been reported which clubs may be interested in offering the Guinea international an escape from his Anfield nightmare, ESPN believes that should the right sum be put on the table, Klopp will have no problem in bidding farewell to the club’s third most expensive player.

  1. I wish he has a buyer ASAP. He is nothing but an excess luggage and a very expensive one for that matter.

  2. He is Good player injure is greatest enermie if he is fit he will delieve one more chance

  3. You can’t beat ‘reports’ even if they fly in the face of reality. Klopp has spent a long time supporting Naby through what has been a difficult and frustrating time for the player and the Club. Naby is enjoying his first full pre-season under Klopp and has been excellent in pre-season, so what does Klopp do with just two weeks left before the season starts? Yep, that’s right decides to sell the guy. Click bait at its finest.

  4. There is a good player in there somewhere, but perhaps he needs a run in the team. His injury record is not good and it often seems to me that Liverpool do not look at players and their past record. The Ox is a prime example. Could not keep a regular place in the Arsenal team because he kept on getting injuries. Good players are not so good if they can only play half of the matches.

  5. Hi, I’m a Blue. I see you lot have the same problem as us. Buying rubbish players at outrageous prices. The big problem you will have, as we have found out to our cost, the only way out, is A FREE TRANSFER, pay deal with the player. Now the part that makes me laugh, finding a club willing to take your REJECTS AWAY. Every club is doing the same as yours and mine, so is foolish enough to help you?
