Despite having two bids rejected already, Liverpool have yet to give up on Naby Keita.
- Liverpool have had bids of £57m and £66m rejected by RB Leipzig
- Leipzig have said the player is not for sale under any circumstance
- Arsenal tried to sign Keita last summer and have been linked with him this summer
Liverpool appear to be chasing a lost cause in Naby Keita. They’ve already had two huge bids rejected, and reports claim they’re going back in for a third bid in the hopes of convincing RB Leipzig to let him go.
The Bundesliga side have made a very public declaration that Keita is not for sale at any price, and that selling him would send the wrong message to the fans and the players. They want to keep their best players together as they enter the Champions League for the first time.
Both Arsenal and Liverpool made approaches for Keita last season while he was still a player for RB Salzburg in Austria. He went on to move to RB Leipzig and had a stellar first season, helping them qualify for the prestigious European competition.
He does, however, have the ambition of one day playing for a big club, and Leipzig may be more open to selling next season.
