Keita & Bellingham latest as forward returns to training – Latest Liverpool FC News

As one report claims Naby Keita is “unhappy” at the club, Jude Bellingham continues to be linked with a move to Liverpool, while one forward has returned to training.


Keita and Bellingham latest

Just when you thought the clamour from some supporters for a new midfielder couldn’t go any further, stories emerge suggesting Keita could leave Liverpool this summer.

Sky Germany‘s Florian Plettenberg claims the Guinean “is unhappy with his current situation” at Liverpool, with initial talks over new terms breaking down.

GOAL‘s Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones has a contrasting story, claiming there is “little chance” of him leaving the club this summer with both parties still planning to agree an extension. That despite interest from “a number of European clubs,” including his former side RB Leipzig.

The Echo run a similar line, with Ian Doyle going as far as to say he’d be “extremely surprised” if Keita left in the near future.

He also added that Liverpool “would like to sign” Borussia Dortmund midfielder Bellingham and that “the Reds are going to sign some midfielders next summer as part of an overhaul.”

It is worth noting, though, that Plettenberg was the first journalist to report that Sadio Mane would be on his way out of Anfield this summer. Keita, of course, belongs to the same agent as Mane, with Sky Sports‘ Melissa Reddy stating that the source “has a very close relationship” with the agency.

Klopp is likely to be asked about Keita’s future in Friday’s pre-match press conference. Watch this space.
