The Guinean international is one world’s elite midfielders
Naby Keita isn’t a household name…yet, but the versatile midfielder who can play as a No. 8, No. 6 and even in the No. 10 role is raising eyebrows across Europe for his impressive display this season.
Standing at 5’8, Keita can do it all. He can dribble, shoot, tackle and has eyes for goals. It’s undetermined what the exact fee were when he left RB Salzburg in August 2016, but Transfermarkt reported it was in the region of £13 million. That fee will be nowhere near his next deal.
The Liverpool and Arsenal target has been so tremendous for his club that RB Leipzig sporting director has come out and said: “I wouldn’t swap Keita with (Manchester United midfielder Paul) Pogba for our style of play.”
