It's unclear whether Liverpool will table a contract or intend to do so.

Jurgen Klopp isn't short of attacking options with the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke playing back-up to the main trio.

Not to mention talented 18-year-old Rhian Brewster in the youth ranks.

But Petit is a prospect and has been called a 'classic' forward by Inter Leipzig coach Heiner Backhaus.

"He's a classic centre-forward, who with aggressiveness and his work rate is up there with the U19s' best strikers," he said.

Will there be two Keita's plying their trade at Liverpool? Watch this space.
