Ever since the Guinean joined the Reds from RB Leipzig for a $66.00m deal in 2017, his Liverpool career was hampered by various injuries as he has been stuck in a frustrating cycle of good performances followed by spells out of the team.
After making his mark in RB Leipzig as one of the hottest prospects in the world, the 26-year-old failed to live up to his price tag as he has only made 10 Premier League appearances this term.
However, according toDaily Star
, Diego Simeone, who’s a long admirer of the midfielder, is eager to take advantage of his situation at Anfield and lure him with an offer ahead of the 2021/21 La Liga season kick-off.
Keita would be the perfect replacement for the Rojiblancos' outgoing midfielders, Hector Herrera and Lucas Torreira, and they could test Liverpool with an initial €35m bid as the midfielder has two years left on his current contract.
