Liverpool are considering offering Juventus Naby Keita in exchange for French midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to reports
Keita has one year remaining on his current deal at Anfield and while there have been suggestions that he’ll sign a new deal, there has also been talk that the Reds are ready to cash in on the Guinean.
Reports last week claimed that a swap deal could be on the cards between Liverpool and Inter Milan, with the Meresysiders offering the Italian giants Keita in exchange for Nicolo Barella.
The Inter man has been the subject of interest from Jurgen Klopp for well over a year now and is valued at around £77 million.
A fresh report is now suggesting another player has been tipped to be part of a swap deal involving Keita. This time it is Juventus’ midfield maestro Rabiot.
Rabiot was first linked with a move to Anfield last week as the Serie A club are said to be keen to part ways with the player this summer due to his excessive wage demands.
The French international, like Keita, has recently turned 27 and also has a year remaining on his current deal.
According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Liverpool could offer Keita to Juventus as part of a swap deal, with no fee involved as both are valued at £17 million, largely due to their contractual situations.
The reports also add that because of the Old Lady’s acquisition of Paul Pogba, they are looking to offload Rabiot in this window.
