According to a recent Bild report, Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita may not be as close to a contract extension as previously thought.
While he may be making steady progress in terms of time in the first team, it still looks like the Reds and Keita are at some distance from each other when it comes to agreeing on a new deal.
The 26-year-old has gone through his fair share of struggles in a bid to consistently dent the starter eleven, but there are certainly plenty of fans out there harboring hopes for his future. Whether or not this is realistic remains to be seen, but Liverpool will need all the bodies they can get their hands on if they are serious about winning the title.
Either way, things are sure to get pretty interesting from the January market window onwards.
