RB Leipzig's Ralph Hasenhuttl "100% sure" Liverpool target Naby Keita is staying

Naby Keita has instructed his agents to secure a move this summer as Liverpool prepare to test RB Leipzig's resolve with an offer worth in excess of £70m for the midfielder, according to the Mirror.

The 22-year-old Guinea global was a shining light in the Leipzig side which stormed to a second-placed finish in the Bundesliga last season.

And, barring any U-turn from Leipzig while the transfer window is still open, Liverpool will put their interest in the 22-year-old on hold till next summer, sources have told ESPN FC.

Liverpool are now going to turn their attentions elsewhere, whilst also looking at their other big targets including Virgil van Dijk.

"The chance (of Keita signing for Liverpool) is 'null",' said the RB Leipzig coach.

The 22-year-old caused fury amongst the squad when he lunged into a unsafe tackle on team-mate Diego Demme which forced the club to cancel a training session.

"I said for all the players it is very important to stay together as it's the first time we play Champions League and that is a new situation for every one of us".

Another 14-year-old passenger, identified as Fresno resident Manuela Ceja, suffered major lacerations to her left leg. Her sister Jacqueline Sanchez , 14, was killed in the crash and another 14-year-old, of Fresno, was seriously injured.

The Reds have been linked with making a number of bids for the RB Leipzig midfielder, all of which have been rejected as they are determined not to be bullied into a sale.

'These are our two most important players on our team so it's sure he will be with our team next year'.

"Liverpool will finish their transfer activities and that's ok with me".

Then Rangnick came out and blamed Keita's "village" to be turning his head toward Liverpool. "We will learn this year again very much, I think".

It remains to be seen how Rangnick's latest comments affect his relationship with Keita, who many expect to leave the east German city next summer at the very latest when his £48m release clause comes into effect.

"I don't tell you about the details of his contract".

"Until next summer we keep it [the door] closed".
