Liverpool may reportedly be willing to give consideration to using African midfielder Naby Keita in a proposal to secure services of AC Milan midfielder

Liverpool to consider Naby Keita as a makeweight to sign AC Milan midfield star

For such a scenario to materialise, it appears likely that Keita would need to pen fresh terms with the Merseyside outfit.

However, a report in Italy says that Milan are monitoring any developments with Keita ahead of potentially trying to sign him on a free transfer.

In sharp contrast, Tonali is contracted to the current Serie A champions until the end of 2026-27, a factor which does not play into Liverpool’s favour.

The Italy international has represented I Rossoneri since 2020, already going on to make 96 appearances in all competitions.

Unless they are required to sell for financial reasons or the 22-year-old expresses a desire to take on a new challenge, Milan are likely to demand in excess of £40m for one of their key men.

Liverpool will have space in their squad if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joins Keita in departing the Premier League outfit on a free transfer in the summer.

Nevertheless, finances are likely to prove key, and Liverpool are also being linked with the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo.
