Ghana's No. 1

Naby Keita 'is seeking assurances from Jurgen Klopp before deciding Liverpool future'

Published on: 25 September 2022

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita is seeking assurances from Jurgen Klopp about playing time before committing to a new contract.

Keita has less than a year remaining on his current deal at Anfield and there is a lot of interest in the Guinea midfielder.

According to Fabrizio Romano, writing for Caught Offside, Keita has yet to decide whether he will stay at Liverpool.

Talks are ongoing between Keita and Liverpool regarding a new deal. Although other clubs have expressed an interest in the 27-year-old, no official bids have yet been made.

Keita has yet to make an appearance for Liverpool in the Premier League so far this season because of a hamstring injury.

Since arriving from RB Leipzig in 2018 Keita has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup with Liverpool.

During that time he has made 117 appearances, but he isn't guaranteed a starting berth when everybody is available.

Liverpool have midfield options including Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago, Curtis Jones, James Milner, Arthur Melo and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as youngsters Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho.

There have also been calls for Liverpool to make another signing, which would make it even more difficult for Keita to get regular minutes.
