Changed for 30 million euros Naby Keita then to RB Leipzig before going to Liverpool two years later for twice the amount. He made 58 appearances in the Bundesliga and scored 14 goals. In the Premier League, Keita made 84 appearances (seven goals) in four seasons. Now it seems his way back to the Bundesliga for SV Werder Bremen respectively.
