Liverpool are interested in signing Burnley defender Michael Keane, according to a report.
UK News providers Bleacher Report claimed via a video on their official Twitter account that there’s a good chance that the 23-year-old will leave the Lancashire side next year with the Reds, Chelsea and Arsenal all interested.
The defender has recently been handed a call-up to the England senior team and it is claimed that the international call has prompted him to consider his club future.

Keane has under two years left on his current deal set to run out in the summer of 2018 and it is stated that he will only sign a new contract with Sean Dyche’s team if a release clause is inserted into the deal.
The defender came through the academy of Liverpool’s fierce rivals Manchester United, where he made just four appearances for the Red Devils.
He spent loan spells at Leicester, Blackburn and Derby respectively before completing a permanent move with Burnley during the January 2015 window.
He starred for the Clarets as they won the Championship in the last campaign and has made seven appearances for them in their Premier League season, which includes playing the full 90 minutes during the 2-0 victory over Liverpool.
In other Liverpool transfer news, Geoffrey Kondogbia is the most likely player to join the Reds in the January transfer window.
