Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, will sign with Werder Bremen when his deal with the Anfield club expires this summer.
The 28-year-old, who made 129 appearances for the Reds and registered 11 goals, joined from RB Leipzig in 2018 for a club-record £48 million.
The Guinea midfielder suffered with injuries this season, making only eight league appearances.
The club already authorised his departure from Liverpool in May.
In his five years in England, Keita won the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup, FA Cup, and EFL Cup.
“A number of clubs are obviously going to be interested when a player like Keita is available on a free transfer,” said Clemens Fritz, head of scouting and professional football at Werder Bremen.
“He suffered an injury setback at the start of this season; and that meant he didn’t play as often as he’d have liked to.
“We now want to get him back to his best.”
Werder Bremen also confirmed the arrival of Naby Keita on Friday, as the midfielder seeks to revive his career after a disappointing stint at Liverpool.
He has signed a three-year contract with Bremen, extending until 2026.
According to reports, the 28-year-old has taken a considerable wage cut, agreeing to earn €1.5 million per year with additional bonuses.
With this move, Keita hopes to reinvigorate his professional trajectory. He looks to establish himself as an integral member of the Bremen squad. The midfielder aspires to redeem himself, leaving behind the disappointments of the past and embracing the opportunity for a fresh start at his new club.
