Liverpool consider £48m Keita clause as Leipzig speak out

Liverpool target Keita rejects bid

Jurgen Klopp has rejected claims that Liverpool could make a fresh bid to try and sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig if Philippe Coutinho leaves the club this summer.

"It does not matter at all whether there is €75m offered or €100m", Rangnick told Sport Bild.

"Nevertheless, if we go into the new season with what we've got now, I think there will be a lot of trepidation amongst the Liverpool fans".

But sporting director Ralf Rangnick admits that they will struggle to renegotiate Keita's contract, which contains a release clause of £48m that becomes active in 12 months.

The Reds have already had two offers for the Guinea worldwide turned down, which were thought to be in the region of £57million and £66m. "All other scenarios also depend on how we do this season, how Naby plays himself and so on".

Eight are proposed for the european banking Authority (EBA ), the less important, but with close to 200 employees. Ministers will then hold a vote in November in a process some have likened to the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Guinea global is contracted to the German side until 2020, but reports in Germany claim a €50m release clause in his existing deal will become active at the conclusion of the upcoming season.

The Guinea global made 32 total appearances across all competitions and played an instrumental role in helping Ralph Hasenhuttl's side to finish second behind by Bayern Munich in their first ever season in the German top-flight.

"We have not developed for five years so that we can lose one of our best players in the first Champions League year".

Keita won 53 successful tackles in the German top flight last season, more than Arsenal's new left-back and Bundesliga Team of the Year entry, Sead Kolasinac. "I think he is more focused than previous year".
