Report: Milan’s link with €65m Liverpool star ‘baseless’ – midfielder going absolutely nowhere

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been linked with a move for Liverpool’s Naby Keita but the midfield is going ‘absolutely nowhere’, a report claims.

MilanLive reported on Wednesday that Keita could leave Anfield this summer due to a lack of consistent playing time, despite that fact that the Reds spent €65million to snatch him from RB Leipzig three years ago.

Several Bundesliga clubs are thinking of making a move, but the report added that the Rossoneri have looked at the Guinea international in the past, and Ralf Rangnick – who worked with Keita at Red Bull Salzburg and Leipzig – could be key in relaunching a fresh move.

According to Liverpool site Empire of the Kop, it is a ‘baseless rumour’ as Keita has finally managed to get fit again after his injury in the AFCON last year.

The outlet describes him as having been ‘jaw-droopingly good in training’ and cites the fact he was Man of the Match in friendlies against another Liverpool XI and Blackburn over the last week.

EOTK adds: “Keita has been at the club two years, and offloading him now, before we’ve got to see his best form consistently would be a massive error. He’s a phenomenal footballer and we’re backing him to prove as much over our remaining nine games.”
