But since contracting coronavirus in October, Keita has played just 152 minutes of Premier League football and is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered in December.
With Liverpool’s season very much on the line heading into the final few months of the campaign, Klopp will be desperate to be able to call upon Keita in the coming weeks.
He’s not travelled with the squad to face RB Leipzig this evening, but there is hope that he could be involved against Everton this weekend.
It’s been suggested that Keita will be competing for his Liverpool future heading into the summer transfer window.
However, The Athletic claim that Klopp isn’t ready to give up on Keita quite yet and wants to give him more time to discover his best form.
