Naby Keita has flattered to deceive since his move to Liverpool in 2018.
The central midfielder arrived from RB Leipzig, with fans on Merseyside thinking they had landed the hottest property in the Bundesliga.
Keita has enjoyed impressive spells in a Reds shirt in recent seasons but ultimately his time in England has been hit by injuries.
With the Guinea international struggling for consistency, and often failing to climb above the likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum in the pecking order, there is talk a return to Germany could be on the cards.
But what are the German media saying about a potential Leipzig transfer?
Bild write that Keita would be welcomed back at Leipzig with open arms.
The player enjoys 'cult' status among supporters, who got to watch him at the peak of his powers.
To add, a return to the Red Bull Arena would signal that Leipzig mean business, with Bild saying a transfer would send an 'exclamation mark' to other European clubs.

Julian Nagelsmann's side are third in the Bundesliga at present, five points off top spot.
However, despite the positives of Keita's return, Bild seem to think a move is out of the question.
The German publication point out that the ball-player would command a fee somewhere in the region of €50m (£45m).
RB Leipzig are unlikely to be able to afford Liverpool's valuation.
Also, Keita's wages will be a stumbling block after he was awarded a hefty pay rise upon arrival in England.
The 25-year-old also left Germany under a cloud after being fined £220,000 for 'using a fake driving licence'.
It is unclear when Keita or Liverpool will next play a competitive game as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the nation.
