Ian Wright says ‘complete player’ Naby Keita will be a ‘superb addition’ to Liverpool and the Premier League.
Liverpool agreed to sign Guinean midfielder Keita from RB Leipzig last summer and he finally arrived at Anfield in June.
Keita was one of the stars of the Bundesliga over the past two seasons and will become the first player to wear Liverpool’s number eight shirt since Steven Gerrard left in 2014.
A host of star names have joined the Premier League this summer – including Jorginho, Fred and Alisson – but Wright says he is most excited by Keita.
‘There are plenty of new faces to look out for – and the one I’m relishing watching most is Keita at Liverpool,’ the former Arsenal and England striker told The Sun.
‘Some say he’s the closest thing they have had to Steven Gerrard, but bossing midfield is tough enough without that tag, so let’s leave that one for now.
‘Yet he does look to be a complete player – fast, strong, can do the holding job or bomb forward and get goals as well.
‘He will be a superb addition to Liverpool and the Premier League.’
