Liverpool activities in the transfer window this term has been quite impressive but their failure to land Naby Keita from RB Leipzig is one that has left Jurgen Klopp leaking his lips.

A move for Naby Keita was mooted by Liverpool at the start of the summer but Leipzig refused to let their guard down in their quest to hold on to the talented midfielder. The Reds had up to two bids for the star rejected  and they are unwilling to meet the valuation of the player.

Liverpool added Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson to their squad this term but the departure of Lucas Leiva and injury to Adam Lallana means Klopp is in the need of a midfielder. However, the Reds appear to have resigned to fate that they will have to do with what they have this season.

While Naby Keita is now linked with a move to Barcelona, mock up Liverpool photos of the star has surfaced and we feature it Here.

 

During his time with Liverpool, Gerrard donned the squad no. 8 for the Reds and since his departure in the summer of 2015, no new entrant has been handed that mantle.  Should Naby sign for Liverpool, that squad no. would perfectly suit him but we can only wish.
