Liverpool Target Naby Keita Calls Himself ‘Deco’ After the Ex-Chelsea Midfielder

Liverpool Target Naby Keita Calls Himself ‘Deco’ After the Ex-Chelsea Midfielder

Liverpool fans are presumably desperately hoping the club can complete a deal for Naby Keita, but they might not be too delighted to know that one of his footballing idols is none other than former Chelsea midfielder Deco.

Keita has been at the centre of a tug-of-war between his current club RB Leipzig and Liverpool all summer, with the Bunesliga club reportedly holding out for as much as £70 million for the 22-year-old.

It remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp and the Reds’ hierarchy will shell out anywhere near that amount of money for one player, but if Keita does end up heading to Merseyside, we’d strongly recommend he changes his Instagram username:

Chelsea might not be Liverpool’s biggest or even their most bitter rivals, but actively calling yourself the same name as one of their former players probably isn’t the wisest move.

Do you think Keita will end up a Liverpool player before September?
