Reports: Klopp’s stance on Milan-linked Liverpool man clear as value plummets below €40m

By Oliver Fisher -

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no intention of parting with midfielder Naby Keita despite links with a move to AC Milan, 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 a report from the Daily Express in England though, Klopp is willing to ‘stand by’ Keita and try and get the best out of such a substantial investment.

As a result Liverpool intend to keep the midfielder, who according to Calciomercato.it is worth €40million or less due to a difficult last couple of years at Anfield.
