Chelsea will rival Liverpool for the signature of Red Bull Leipzig star Naby Keita this summer, according to The Sun.
The Sun believe that Antonio Conte is looking to strengthen his options in midfield this summer, and Keita could provide a useful back-up option for PFA Player of The Year N’Golo Kante. The tabloid note that AS Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko is also an option for the champions-elect this summer.
According to The Sun, Chelsea will face competition from Premier League counterparts Liverpool in the race to sign Keita this summer.
The Guinean international has enjoyed a stellar campaign for RB Leipzig, and his good performances do not appear to have gone unnoticed.
The Sun report that the Bundesliga outfit will demand £25million in exchange for Keita, who is one of their prize assets.
It does not look as though Conte is going to rest on his laurels this summer, despite his side’s success this season.
