Liverpool are staying in Italy on Wednesday night and hope Keita will fly back to Merseyside with the rest of the squad on Thursday.

“Keita was transferred to a local hospital with the club doctor, where – with the midfielder’s agreement – he underwent a number of precautionary health checks to assess his condition.

“No decision has yet been taken on when the 23-year-old will be discharged,” a statement on Liverpool’s website said.

Keita was replaced by Jordan Henderson as Liverpool went on to lose 1-0 to the Serie A side.
