Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita admits he would love to see former teammate Timo Werner join him at Anfield in the summer.
Keita officially moved to Liverpool last summer from RB Leipzig after the two clubs agreed a £52m deal in August 2017, with the Guinea international then playing out the rest of the 2017/18 season with the Bundesliga outfit.
After a bright first couple of Premier League games in the starting XI, the 24-year-old then started to suffer with injury problems and a loss of form, appearing to struggle to gain Jurgen Klopp’s trust and show the levels that convinced Liverpool to buy him.
Now, Keita is beginning to show signs of coming to life at Liverpool, having started each of their last four Premier League games and impressed during their 3-0 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend.
Keita and Werner spent two seasons playing alongside each other in the Bundesliga for Leipzig, striking up a partnership and Liverpool’s no.8 hasn’t made a secret of his desire for a reunion on Merseyside.
