£55m-rated Liverpool midfielder got an injury during the AFCON

Liverpool player Naby Keita got an injury during the African Cup of Nations match against Nigeria, and he will miss this tournament. It is terrible news for the Merseyside club as he is an unchanged figure for the club. He could skip pre-season with the Reds.

Guinea international had a great season and proved his worth one more time. Keita joined the Reds from RB Leipzig in 2018 with a €60m deal. He became a key figure for the club and played several matches amazingly since joining. In this campaign, Naby made 33 appearances, scored three goals and provided one assist in all tournament.

It is an excellent result, and he can improve his consequences during the next season. The 24-year-old midfielder has contracted with the Merseyside club until 2023, and his release clause is around €60m. He regularly plays in the national team line-up which is already a significant achievement for the footballer.

Merseyside club had an impressive result in the Premier League as they finished the tournament in a second position. Liverpool also won the Champions League final against Tottenham 2-0, and it is the first title for Jurgen Klopp.

English club heavily linked with Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio, Ajax forward David Neres, RB Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner, Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir, PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, Real Betis defender Junior Firpo and Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.
