Sadly, the Guinean hasn’t donned the 2017/18 Liverpool strip…
That would be fairly disrespectful to current club Rb Leipzig, for whom he’s still playing until next summer.
But a picture of Keita in Liverpool’s away kit from the 2007/08 season has surfaced!
Keita would have been just 12-years-old here, turning out regularly for local side Horoya.
From Horoya, he moved to FC Istres in France in 2013, playing one season, before transferring to Red Bull Salzburg. Two years in Austria was enough for the Red Bull franchise to decide the midfielder belonged at Bundesliga club Rb Leipzig, and from there, the rest is history.
Keita was the best midfielder in Germany last season and Liverpool have secured his services from the beginning of next term onwards.
We cannot wait!
