Tottenham Hotspur has reportedly become a surprising target for the Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, according to 90min (h/t HITC).
This summer, the international player from Guinea might sign with another team. Talk of a new contract at Anfield hasn’t gone far.
He paid £52.75 million to join Liverpool in the summer of 2018. However, he was unable to justify his price tag, mainly due to recurring injury problems.
Keita missed his 86 games with the Reds due to a string of fitness issues. As a result, he was unable to find his rhythm and never established himself as a regular for the Reds.
Keita has played just 245 league minutes this season.Tottenham ought to see an inflow of midfielders this summer, with Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Winks set to go back from their respective mortgage spells.
Tanguy Ndombele joined Napoli last summer on a one-season loan for £ 26.7 million. Her current midfield options include Pierre Emile her Hoybjerg, Rodrigo her Bentancourt, Yves her Bisuma and Oliver her Skip.
But signing a player like Keita, perhaps without a fee, is an opportunity they should jump in. Keita is one of the best dribblers out there, creating chances in the last third and turning them around. I can.
Spurs could face competition from RB Leipzig keen to re-sign the 27-year-old. Lyon, Inter Milan, AS Monaco, and AC Milan are also following the Liverpool midfielder’s status at L4.
