On the day of his 26th birthday we look at the reasons why Liverpool forked out a reported £48 million for Naby Keita.

The Guinea international completed a move to Anfield from RB Leipzig in July 2018 after the English Premier League club triggered his release clause in addition to paying an undisclosed premium 11 months prior.

Keita scored eight and assisted the same amount of goals in 31 appearances for Leipzig in the 2016-17 season as the East German club finished their maiden Bundesliga campaign in second spot.

He was equally as influential the following campaign, notching up 11 goal involvements in 27 matches before completing his move to Liverpool.

Keita has struggled to replicate that sort of form on Merseyside with injuries having stifled his progress at the club.
