According to Il Messaggero, Keita Baldé was seemingly a target for Jürgen Klopp to provide an alternative to Sadio Mane, much like Mohamed Salah is currently, and talks between the two clubs were being reported by the Italian press does not augur well as it appears that move does not materialise.

However, it appears the forward rejected the Premier League club’s advances in order in order to remain in Italy as both AC Milan and Inter Milan is on the standby and the player also eye Juventus in the future.
