Leipzig's Guinean midfielder Naby Keita celebrates after scoring the 4-0 during the German first division Bundesliga football match between RB Leipzig and SV Darmstadt 98 in Leipzig

The German club have since reportedly rejected two bids from Liverpool for the midfielder over the summer.

Leipzig sporting director Rangnick recently stated that he believes the 22-year-old Guinea worldwide is being poorly advised and insists too many outside people are offering their thoughts on his future.

Jurgen Klopp has been chasing Keita all summer after identifying him as one of his prime targets but Liverpool have found it hard to get a fee agreed with a stubborn Leipzig side.

Jurgen Klopp has joked that Liverpool will lodge a bid for Naby Keita that would more than triple the current world-record fee.

But as RB Leipzig continue in their stance not to sell their key player, Klopp has been forced to turn his attentions elsewhere.

He is quoted as saying: "Then we'll make a €300m [£268m] offer for Keita!"

"The chance (of Keita leaving) is "null".

RB Leipzig head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl has insisted that Naby Keita will "100%" be at the club next season following numerous attempts from Liverpool to sign him.

"We stated at the start of the transfer window that we would begin next season with the players who finished the last and nothing has changed".

Leipzig's excellence in the Bundesliga last season was aided by the brilliance of Keita, who scored eight goals and assisted seven as the top-tier newcomers stormed to a second-place league finish behind behemoths Bayern Munich.

That is also because there is a release clause in his contract worth €50m that can only be activated from the summer of 2018.

'These are our two most important players on our team so it's sure he will be with our team next year'.

"It's normal when you play such a famous season that other clubs are watching us and you get interest", he said.

"They will not be the only one I think".
