Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all reportedly weighing up potential moves to sign Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita on a free transfer.
The Guinean international is out of contract in June and talks over an extension have not progressed in recent months.
Considering Keita’s extremely poor fitness record, fans on Twitter would not be overly fussed if the player does end up joining one of the trio of London clubs:

It does feel like one of those rumours that could have been put out there by Keita’s representatives in order to put pressure on Liverpool to offer a better contract.
We shall have to wait and see whether there is any substance to these claims. As things stand, Keita will leave Anfield on a free and, considering his inability to stay fit, the majority of supporters seem open to him leaving.
Keita has actually returned to training this week following a hamstring problem so we shall see if his performances in upcoming matches change some peoples’ minds.
