If Liverpool target Naby Keita wants to join the Reds from RB Leipzig, he would need to force that move through as his club remains adamant that he is not for sale.
In the latest development, the Germans have rejected a mammoth £57 million for the midfielder who has only played one season in the German top flight. According to the German publication, Bild, the Reds, who have been informed by Leipzig that they would not sell Keita, went ahead with the offer as they are convinced that the player wants to join them.
Keita is keen on moving to Anfield, and has unofficially told his team of his wish, but the club is in a stronger position as he has about 4 years left on his current deal, and they are making sure he stays put.
Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp has no alternative player for Keita and he has told the club to do whatever it takes to land the player.
Klopp plans to use the Guinean as the engine room of his new look side ahead of a return to the Champions League.
Liverpool is expected to go back for his signature with an improved offer.
