Atletico Madrid considering move for 26-year-old Liverpool midfielder

By | May 15, 2021

Atletico Madrid have reportedly identified Liverpool midfield star Naby Keita as a potential transfer target in the summer.

Diego Simeone’s well-drilled side are currently two wins away from winning the La Liga title ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

However, according to Fichajes, the Argentine is already given consideration to how he can improve his squad during the next window.

The report claims that Naby Keita has recently been added to his shortlist with the 26-year-old having failed to make a sustained impact at Anfield.

Keita has made just 32 starts in the Premier League since his arrival in 2018 with just 10 outings being made in England’s top-flight during the current season.

While the Guinea international still has two years left on his current deal, Jurgen Klopp may be prepared to raise funds to sign other targets.

Meanwhile, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all reportedly keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

The 23-year-old was heavily linked with Barcelona during last summer’s transfer window, however, ultimately stayed with Inter and has enjoyed another strong season.

The Argentina international has managed to found back of the net 18 times and provided nine assists in 46 games in all competitions for Antonio Conte’s team, who recently clinched the Serie A tittle.
