Naby Keita's 17-Year-Old Brother, Petit, Is Training With Liverpool
It appears Naby Keita's younger brother is training with Liverpool.
Introducing 17-year-old Petit Keita.
The budding striker left Germany and is training at Liverpool's academy. He's been seen at the clubs Kirkby complex since leaving fifth-tier side Inter Leipzig during the summer per ESPN.
Petit actually followed his brother, Naby, to Liverpool following the completion of his £48 million transfer from RB Leipzig in the summer.
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.
I love that Naby Keita's 17-year old brother is training with @LFC. But really love that his name is Petit Keita. Dont even have to give him a nickname.

Of course Naby Keita's younger brother's name is Petit Keita, what else could it be, really.

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.
