RB Leipzig maestro ​Naby Keïta is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up a thigh strain in Monday night's ​Bundesliga defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.


Keïta was replaced soon after the hour mark by Emil Forsberg following a challenge which led him signalling to the bench for treatment.


Leipzig confirmed on Tuesday the Guinean international had suffered a strain in his right thigh, but say the intensity of the injury is "unclear" for the future.

In addition, club captain Willi Orban also sustained a deep cut to his right knee, but played the full match in Frankfurt.


Though it may be minor, the injury will undoubtedly have caught the attention of ​Liverpool, who will welcome Keïta in the summer, with ​Emre Can seemingly on the verge of leaving on a free.


It is likely, however, the midfielder will miss the second leg against ​Napoli, after helping his side carry a 3-1 lead to the Red Bull Arena.
