Liverpool fans are excited that Naby Keita is nearing return to full training

Premiership Picks

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Naby Keita is edging closer to a return to full fitness, and Liverpool fans are excited by the prospect of seeing him in action soon.

The Guinea international picked up an injury while at the African Cup of Nations during the summer and despite playing 23 minutes in the Community Shield, he has been out of action since.

Speaking in his pre-Newcastle United press conference, Klopp confirmed that he expects the 24-year-old midfielder to return to full training after Liverpool’s clash with Napoli on Tuesday.

It will be welcome news for the Reds, allowing for rotation ahead of a period where they will play seven games in just 22 days.

Despite perhaps failing to live up to his £48m price-tag last season, contributing three goals and one assist in 33 games, fans are happy with the news of his imminent return and look forward to seeing him in red soon.
