AC Milan plotting shock raid on key Liverpool duo

Italian champions AC Milan are interested in bringing Liverpool's midfield pair of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to the San Siro next summer, according to Calciomercato.

According to Football Insider, Keita will not sign a new contract at Liverpool.

The 27-year-old's contract runs out at the end of the season and previously held talks with the club about the possibility of extending.

Those talks broke down in the summer and he is now expected to leave on a free.

His career at the Reds has been hurt by injuries since signing from RB Leipzig for £52million in 2017.

It has also been reported that Oxlade-Chamberlain has been offered to Southampton on a loan deal in January.

Like Keita, his contract runs out in the summer of next year after five and a half years at the club, he is not expected to be offered a new one.

The midfielder signed from Arsenal for just £34million back in 2017 and has won everything there is to win at club level during his time at the club.

What has Klopp said on the situation?

Earlier in the season, the Liverpool boss was asked about his midfield options and he admitted they were thin: "I know we have had this discussion since it all started and I am the one who said we don’t need a midfielder and you were all right and I was wrong.

"That’s the situation. There is really nothing more to say about it. We are looking for it, and if it is the right player we need him and if it is not the right player we don’t need him."
