Liverpool have confirmed the agreement of a club-record deal to sign RB Leipzig midfielder NaKeita next summer.
Sky Sports News understands the Reds will pay
the £48m release clause that will allow Keita to join the club, as well
as an undisclosed premium.
The Guinea international said: “I am delighted that an agreement has
been reached and I will become part of a project that excites me
“My commitment to RBL remains absolute for the remainder of my time at
the club. I have given my all every time I have worn the shirt – that
will be the case until the final whistle, in my final appearance.
“Having my future resolved means I can now focus on helping RBL achieve
great things this season. Until I join my new club, next summer, I will
remain an interested supporter from a distance.”
Leipzig had been attempting to convince the Guinea international, who
has appeared three times so far this season, to sign a new contract.
Keita scored eight goals in 31 appearances last season as Leipzig finished as the runners-up in the Bundesliga.
