It’s been a transfer window full of surprises, and Borussia Dortmund could be set to carry on this trend.
According to multiple reports emanating from England and Germany, Borussia Dortmund are pushing to sign Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.
The Guinea international joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig for a fee in the region of 60 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
The midfielder finished the 2021/22 season with a tally of 4 goals and 3 assists from 40 matches across all competitions.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best football players in Guinea. His record for Guinea is impressive. Keita has scored 11 goals in 50 matches for Guinea at senior level.
It is evident that Liverpool manager does not see him as a key part of his plans and Keita now wants to leave.
Edin Terzic needs to tighten up his midfield and a central midfielder would be a welcome addition. Terzic is a firm fan of Liverpool midfielder and BVB could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The former Leipzig man would provide a good variety to Borussia Dortmund’s midfield. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Borussia Dortmund are interested in Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita. The Mirror says Dortmund are interested and any money received could be used to find a replacement. Keita is inside the final year of his contract at Liverpool.”
