Liverpool could reportedly be convinced into parting ways with Naby Keita this summer despite a positive start to the season this year.
This comes from ESPN (via liverpool.com), with the Guinean international having started in both the Reds’ 3-0 and 2-0 victories over Norwich City and Burnley respectively.

Given Jurgen Klopp’s show of faith in the No.8 has been somewhat rewarded this term, it would be a bizarre move on our part to sell the midfielder having already lost Gini Wijnaldum.
We would presume that the club would have a suitable target in mind to come in at that point, though we couldn’t afford to skimp out on a player in terms of availability.
Injury prone as Keita has previously proven to be, we simply can’t afford to lose yet another midfield option without a replacement.
Even so, given how promising the early signs from the 26-year-old have been, it would be somewhat harsh a decision to part ways with him at this late stage in the window.
