Liverpool are closing in on completing their second signing of the transfer window after the arrival of Mohamed Salah in a bid to push for a dream Premier League title.
Liverpool are been linked with Guinean star Naby Keita and it appears that talks have advanced for the player to join and report from theguardian as made it know that a deal can be concluded in coming days from now. No conclusion can be made yet from his absence but Liverpool fans would love to welcome him to their club.
The 22 years old midfielder had a barnstorming Bundesliga debut season with RP Leipzig. His club has slam a £70m but Liverpool Echo claim despite the price tag Liverpool will hold talks with the Bundesliga outfit to make enquiry about the midfielder.
Reports suggest that Keita also want a move and will discuss with the club hierarchy about it.
Former Liverpool player Leon Osman claims the price tag is too huge for the Reds to pay. “I think to get out to pay £70 million for a player who, withn all due respect, is just destroying, and he (Keita) has only done one season of it, its and incredible risk as far as I’m concerned.” He said. Keita can play as a central midfielder and he is expected to play alongside Coutinho or in his place.
