Liverpool are open to selling Naby Keita in the summer transfer window, according to ESPN.

ESPN have named Keita among a number of players Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool could sell at the right price this summer.

The former Premier League champions need to raise funds before they can make big signings, and the 26-year-old Guinea international could be among those who are sold.

Liverpool exit for Naby Keita?

Liverpool paid RB Leipzig £48 million for Keita, according to BBC Sport.

The midfielder has had injury problems and has been largely a peripheral figure in the Liverpool team.

The 26-year-old has scored four goals in 53 appearances in the Premier League for the Reds so far in his career.

One can understand why Liverpool are reportedly open to offers for Keita.

The midfielder has really not made a massive impact at Anfield, and perhaps manager Klopp has not seen enough from him in training to think that he could still make it big.

The problem that the former Premier League champions could face in selling Keita is getting anywhere close to the £48 million they paid for him.

Clubs will be aware of the injury problems of the midfielder, and will also know that he has not played much at Liverpool and has not kicked on since he left Leipzig.
