Naby Keita wants a more prominent role at Liverpool.
The 26-year old midfielder won’t sign a new contract amid concerns over his role at Anfiield.
The Guinean midfielder’s contract runs out in 2023 who has made just 34 Premier League starts across four seasons for Liverpool.
He arrived at Anfield in 2018 for a £52.75m fee from RB Leipzig but has struggled to make an impact at the Merseyside club.
The Reds are somehow willing to offer the midfielder a new contract despite his injury issues which have hampered his momentum.
SportsBILD journalist Christian Falk claims Keita won’t sign unless he gets a starting role at the club.
“It is true that there was an initial discussion with his management,” Falk said, as reported by Sport Witness.
“Of course, they would like to extend the contract with Keita, but he wants to play for them.
“If he doesn’t join the team soon, there won’t be any further progress in extending his contract.
“He can look at his contract, which runs until 2023 and is in no hurry to extend it, so there has to be some sporting arguments to get him to sign.”
