"The midfielder will formally become a Reds player on Sunday after a
deal was reached with RB Leipzig for his services in August 2017,” a
statement on the club’s site read.
Keita will begin pre-season training with Liverpool on Monday at Melwood, joining the rest of the players who are not on international duty.
The former Leipzig man told Liverpoolfc.com: "When you see how they
performed last season it makes me want to do the same and to be a part
of this team. I would like to be able to achieve a similar kind of
season with them next season – but even better.
"I chose Liverpool because it is a team I watched often – and I also spoke a lot about it with Sadio Mane. He told me a lot about the team and the club.
"I also spoke with the coach, who told me about the project for the team and that motivated me to be here."
