Liverpool as set to frustrate Arsenal in their bid to sign RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, according to The Mirror.
Keita, 22, has been impressive for Leipzig this season and his fine form has caught the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Premier League giants Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton are said to be keeping tabs on the forward, while Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund as well as Spain’s Atletico Madrid have been alerted by his fine form.
Liverpool are currently the most interested in the forward but could face competition from Arsenal to sign the man who is regarded as one of Bundesliga’s best midfield prospects.
Arsenal are known for signing talented young players and helping them become top players at the Emirates so it isn’t surprising that Keita has caught the attention of the club.
Keita has scored four goals in 20 league appearances for Lepizig this season, helping his team to second on the Bundesliga table which I think is a very impressive statistics considering the position he plays.
In other news, another young midfielder Marcelo Allende was spotted training with Arsenal few days ago ahead of a potential move to the Emirates.
