RB Leipzig coach Hasenhutti on Keita: You can tell Liverpool from me...

RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhutti is quietly confident keeping hold of Naby Keita.

The midfielder is a big money target for Liverpool.

Hasenhuttl admits he is flattered by the attraction his top stars are gaining from across Europe, but insists both Keita and Emil Forsberg are happy to remain at their current side.

"You can tell them (the interested clubs) that they feel very comfortable and look forward to the new season," he told Kicker. “They know very well what they have with us.

“Our goal is to become a large and established club.

“It is a huge compliment for us that we have aroused such desires.

"But it is not the purpose and purpose of our journey to let our players get their first offer.

“Our goal is to become a large and established club, and that is what we have done this summer, a significant step towards it."
