Liverpool target Naby Keita has played down speculation linking him with a move away from RB Leipzig.
The Guinea international midfielder has been linked with a switch to Anfield to become part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the 2017/18 season.
But it looks like he is happy where he is and is looking forward to playing in the Champions League with the German club during the next campaign.
“I really don’t worry about such things. My only focus is on our games and my performances; they are the most important things,” Keita told Bundesliga.com.
“I am a young player who never cares about rumours or what appears in the newspapers. I am now looking forward to a well-earned holiday and then to next season.
“This is like a dream! We enjoyed a really great season but it sits well with us. With each game we won, our confidence grew that much more.
“Our initial goal was to achieve top-flight safety as soon as possible. We succeeded brilliantly and by finishing second, we can of course feel more than satisfied.
“But we don’t want to sit back now. We will continue to progress and ride this wave of success for as long as possible.
“We are really keen to discover what the Champions League is all about.
“Every player dreams of playing in it and we will do everything in our power to make a difference in the tournament.
“The fact that we managed to qualify directly for the group stage of the Champions League is fantastic for our club.
“Our team is young, hungry and very ambitious.” he finished.
It doesn’t sound like good news for those hoping to see him move to Anfield this Summer, but it’s unlikely Klopp will give up the chase just yet.
