Schalke 04’s sporting director Christian Heidel has been impressed by Guinean international Naby Keita.
The central midfielder was in action for RB Leipzig as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Schalke in their first 2017/18 German Bundesliga match on Saturday.
Schalke club official Heidel has praised the talented 22-year-old box-to-box midfielder, who has impressive abilities.
« Everyone has seen that RB are a top team, especially since they played with 12 today, » Heidel said on Spox.
« Naby Keita plays for two. The kid is unbelievable. I’ve rarely seen anything like it.
« Even when three [Schalke players] were on him, he somehow managed to keep hold of the ball. »
Keita, who had a great 2016/17 season with Leipzig, has been on the radar of English Premier League (EPL) giants Liverpool FC during the current Transfer Window.
Leipzig have already confirmed that they rejected two bids from the Reds as they look to keep the highly-rated midfielder for another season.
