Liverpool have finally ended their interest in highly rated midfielder Naby Keita, according to SkySports.
SkySports reported earlier today that after failing to seal the deal with several offers, Liverpool have ended their interest in Keita.
The reports continuously linked the 22-year-old with Liverpool for a big summer move but Leipzig put an exceptional price tag on him due to which the deal fell through.
Liverpool reportedly made a £67million offer for him but the German side rejected the offer by saying that it was too low, and then put an £80million price tag on their midfielder.
The Reds have been in link with him for the past few months, the player was also likely to join the Premier League side but the transfer fee remained the issue between both the sides.
Despite of having a generous offer from Liverpool, Bundesliga side rejected. Now they could even sell him on a low price if he fails to perform in the coming season.
A representative from Leipzig told Sky Sources that Keita will stay at the club for another season.
Keita scored 8 goals in 31 games for the German side last season.
Liverpool have completed three summer deals, Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson. They are still active in the market and will seal few more players before the transfer window ends.
