Though the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern enjoyed a promising start to the window – following the arrival of Mo Salah – it’s fair to say things have stalled of late.
Andrew Robertson has been brought in to finally strengthen the left-back berth, though Virgil van Dijk may be too far out of reach and recent reports suggest Philippe Coutinho really is a target for Barcelona. Indeed, all this coupled together has our local Kopites somewhat concerned.
Which is why reports from Sky Sports have concerned our resident Reds even more. They claim RB Leipzig are convinced Naby Keita will not be sold this summer, despite apparent big bids from the Anfield giants of late.
Liverpool are understood to have seen three bids rejected by the Bundesliga outfit, with the player reportedly having a £48m release clause next summer. Touted as a major target for Jurgen Klopp, the Guinea international is said to want a move over to Merseyside, though his club are thought to be trying to get him to pen a new deal.
Emerging as one of the most exciting central midfielders in Europe last season, it’s certainly a blow for our local Liverpool supporters, who were hoping to see him arrive as soon as possible.
