Naby Keita struggles at Liverpool
Naby Keita joined Liverpool in the summer of 2018 from German outfit RB Leipzig for a fee of around £54m.
Keita enjoyed an excellent spell at Leipzig, during which he made 58 appearances, scoring 14 and assisting 13.
However, since making the switch to Anfield, Keita has struggled for form.
Another Liverpool signing, Fabinho, also had a tough start to life at Liverpool but the Brazilian has been superb in recent months.
Keita, on the other hand, has still yet to show his quality in England.
The 23-year-old has played 22 games across all competitions since joining Liverpool and registered just one assist for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Werner warned against Anfield move
After Keita’s poor start at Liverpool, RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick has warned Timo Werner against following in his footsteps.
Werner was linked with a move to Anfield in the January window.
The 22-year-old has played 100 games for Leipzig. In those 100 games, Werner has scored 50 and assisted 20.
The strikers contract is also due to run out in July of 2020, meaning Liverpool could sign him for a pretty low fee.
When speaking about Werner joining Liverpool, Rangnick had this to say:
“Keita was an outstanding player here, but he’s still struggling in Liverpool.
“So far, he’s not the player there that he was here. The surroundings must be right for Timo. That’s the case here.”As quoted by the Mirror.
