It is no secret that Liverpool will be bringing in some competition and fresh faces this summer. This, obviously, means that several players will be looking for new clubs as Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp accumulate the funds to buy said new players. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Georginio Wijnaldum and Naby Keita are all midfielders facing an Anfield summer exit. 

Reports claim that Naby Keita, who has been linked with a move to Leicester City, will stay at Liverpool and fight for his place in Jurgen Klopp's first team set up. However, Naby Keita's agent has since come out and criticised Jurgen Klopp for playing his client in the wrong position. 

Malick Kebe took to Twitter to air his grievances with the German manager. 

"The day that Coach Klopp gets Naby Keita to play in his favorite role, you see what he will bring to Liverpool. He is a playmaker, not a scavenger. Good to hear, hi."

Since joining Liverpool after the Merseyside giants triggered Keita's £48 million release clause, Keita has failed to keep a regular starting spot. Whether it be injuries or poor form (see Liverpool vs Real Madrid), the Guinean international has failed to live up to the hype. 

This season Keita has registered just 16 total appearances for the Reds with only 10 of those coming from the Premier League. In all of his play time, 714 minutes to be exact, Keita has failed to provide a goal or an assist for Liverpool. 

Is Naby Keita's agent right? Could Jurgen Klopp be using the midfielder incorrectly?
