The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait to see their club back in the Champions League next season, however, they know some serious business needs to be done before they get going on Europe’s top table once again.
One name which has been doing the rounds here in the bar on almost a daily basis is that of RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, who was a shining light in their outstanding Bundesliga campaign last season.
Considering his popularity amongst the resident Reds support here in the Tavern, news coming from The Mirror has gone down very well this evening.
The red-top claim that the £22.95m-rated midfielder has his heart set on a move to Anfield this summer.
However, it’s not going to be easy for Reds manager Jurgen Klopp to land a deal, with the German outfit demanding a shocking £70m fee for their man.
While Leipzig seem fairly firm at the moment, our landlord reckons that if Keita really is set on a move to Merseyside then the powers that be at Anfield should be able to land a deal for less than the £70m asking price.
