AC Milan ‘offered’ chance to sign potentially outgoing Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita
Reports from Liverpool Echo claim that AC Milan have the chance to sign Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita once his contract with the Reds expires at the end of the season (Transfermarkt). While some fans may have hoped that Keita would finally find his form at Anfield, it appears that his time with the club is coming to an end.
Since his arrival in 2018, Keita has struggled to make a consistent impact for Liverpool. Despite showing glimpses of his undoubted ability, the midfielder has always stood plagued by injuries and inconsistency, which has prevented him from making a sustained impact on the team.
With Liverpool possessing a stacked midfield, Keita’s unavailability in games due to his inconsistencies and injuries has seen him fall down the pecking order. The likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Harvey Elliott, and even Stefan Bajcetic are all preferred to Keita, leaving him with limited game time.
As a result, it appears that a move away from Anfield would be in the best interests of both parties. While Keita may be able to revive his career elsewhere, Liverpool can look to bring in fresh talent to bolster their midfield options.
Could Keita move to Italy?
However, a move to AC Milan seems unlikely, with reports suggesting that Keita’s wage demands and physical fitness concerns are proving to be a stumbling block. While AC Milan are undoubtedly a top club, it is clear that Keita’s future may lie elsewhere.
The news of Keita’s potential departure will undoubtedly be met with mixed emotions by Liverpool fans. While some may have hoped that he would be able to fulfil his potential at Anfield, others may feel that it is time to move on from a player who has struggled to make an impact.
Regardless of what happens, it is clear that Liverpool will need to make some changes to their midfield in the summer. With the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also potentially leaving the club, Jurgen Klopp will need to bring in fresh talent to ensure that his midfield remains one of the strongest in the league.
In conclusion, while Liverpool fans may have hoped that Naby Keita would be a success at Anfield, it appears that his time with the club is coming to an end and it is a sort of bittersweet feeling.
