Liverpool are one of the efficient Premier League Clubs in the transfer market, we know Jurgen Klopp is keen to prove his critiques wrong.
According to the Express, Liverpool are on the verge of sealing a second summer signing after Guinean star Naby Keita agreed personal terms to join the Club.
Keita, 22, has been on the transfer radar of Liverpool since last summer and the Mugsmashers are now willing to breaking the bank in order to get the player to put pen to paper on a deal for them.
We understand that his Club Leipzig wants to hold on to the player and they have tagged the player with a whopping £70m price tag. It is left to be seen how much will be paid for him but the Reds cannot spend such bogus sum on the midfielder.
Speaking about the deal, German football expert said:
“I’ve heard Liverpool will definitely sign Keita and Red Bull are now just trying to get as much as possible for the player.
“Keita caught Jurgen Klopp’s attention immediately upon arriving in Germany – scoring the winner against Dortmund on his debut for Leipzig.
“At the minute, Red Bull are playing hardball, but have already begun moves to replace Keita.
“Personal terms have been agreed with the player, who will offer an energetic midfield option which is capable of dictating the play.”
Liverpool ended last season in fourth position on the League table and part of their problem was the needed steel in midfield. They lack a creative player that can connect the defense and attack, which is what Keita is capable of offering.
Keita scored eight goals and provided eight assist for Leipzig last term and he is has been tipped to be a perfect partner for Philippe Coutinho in the middle of the pack for the Reds.
Meanwhile, Liverpool already have Mohamed Salah as their first summer signing and they are yet linked with a move for Virgil van Dijk.
