Liverpool want £70m-rated midfielder Keita

Naby Keita

Liverpool are willing to pay a club record fee to bring RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita to Anfield.

Leipzig insist the 22-year-old Guinea international will not be sold this summer after they qualified for this season’s Champions League.

Keita has been touted as having a £70m price tag, although he has a £48m release clause in his contract that can be unlocked next summer.
