Despite this situation, there are still some rumours that Keita is not happy with his contract situation, which ends in 2023, and was in negotiations with the board to see what would happen, so he had not been contemplated to play against Crystal Palace or Manchester United, even though the official report says it is due to injury.

Jude Bellingham

Liverpool have long been linked with Borussia midfielder Jude Bellingham, although he is expected to be signed by 2023, Dortmund's recent interest in Keita would open the field for a possible swap between the two sides or a deal to include both players in the transfer window before the end of the transfer window.

Bellingham has been a standout individual performer for the German club and has attracted the attention of several big clubs such as Real Madrid and Liverpool ahead of next season. According to AS, the 19-year-old Englishman's exit from Signal Iduna Park is a done deal, and his short-term future could be back in the Premier League.

Klopp is aware of the shortcomings he currently has in his midfield with Thiago injured for a longer period of time and Henderson and Milner in need of competition, which is why Liverpool have put their energy into buying Bellingham.
