Keita's current contract at Anfield has one year left to run, and while there have been rumors that he'll sign a new one, there have also been rumors that the Reds are prepared to sell the Guinean.

Due to his exorbitant pay demands, the Serie A club is reportedly eager to part ways with Adrien Rabiot this summer. Liverpool was originally mentioned in connection with a move for Rabiot last week.

According to the Italian publication Calciomercato, Liverpool may offer Keita to Juventus as part of a trade. The reports also state that the Old Lady is looking to unload Rabiot during this window due to their signing of Paul Pogba.

Klopp would rather extend Keita’s contract than approve a transfer this summer. However, Klopp is ready to change his midfield options. Keita moved from German club RB Leipzig to Liverpool in 2018 for a fee of £48 million.

Keita did not reach his full potential with the ‘Reds’.

Despite having great expectations for himself, the playmaker has struggled mightily with injuries during his time at Anfield. Over the course of four seasons at the club,  Keita made just 116 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 11 goals.
