Liverpool Midfielder Naby Keita to Join Werder Bremen on a Free Transfer
Liverpool midfielder, Naby Keita is set to join German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen this summer when his contract expires. The 28-year-old joined the Reds from RB Leipzig in 2018 for a club record fee of £48m.
Injuries plagued the Guinea midfielder’s career at Anfield, and he only managed eight league appearances this season which led to Liverpool confirming his departure in May.
During his five-year stay in England, Keita was part of Liverpool’s historic moments lifting trophies such as Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup, FA Cup and EFL Cup.
“A number of clubs are obviously going to be interested when a player like Keita is available on a free transfer,” said Clemens Fritz – head of scouting and professional football at Werder Bremen. “He suffered an injury setback at the start of this season and that meant he didn’t play as often as he’d have liked to. We now want to get him back to his best.”
The Future Ahead for Naby Keita
The future looks bright for Naby Keita following confirmation that he will be joining Werder Bremen on a free transfer after leaving Liverpool. Despite injuries being an issue during his stint with the Reds resulting in limited game time over recent years; there are still high hopes for what lies ahead.
Keïta started playing football early but got injured that kept him out almost one year while playing street soccer. He played both handball and football competitively before choosing one sport due to travel commitments causing scheduling conflicts between matches.
