Liverpool

Naby Keita desperately needs this strong midfield partner to win Liverpool the league next year

Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting excited about what could be next season after this campaign’s promising signs under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have looked a tad more dangerous every time they’ve stepped on the pitch in recent months, and the Champions League displays just go to show what they could be next season especially with the addition of Naby Keita in the team – who finally makes his move from RB Leipzig.

In the centre the of the park, there is going to be a battle and a half for a regular spot in the team, and with Naby Keita adding extra pressure to perform, some in the bar feel that Klopp may bring in another player to create a midfield duo to run the show behind the front three.

There is obviously great talk, at length, over the possibility of Liverpool winning the Champions League this year, however, even if they don’t they are still a very attractive option for most players across Europe. Indeed, the Reds are even showing signs of being able to compete for the Premier League and Ketia’s excellence will only add to that.

With that in mind, our punters on the bar stool believe that this player could be the pepper to Keita’s salt…

OUR VERDICT – Wilfred Ndidi

The Leicester City holding midfielder would be the perfect type of player to accommodate Keita. The No.8 player needs to be let loose off his leash and Ndidi loves nothing better than to sit back and let the others do the running around in front of him.

The Foxes midfielder has certainly stepped into N’Golo Kante’s boots after he’d gone to Chelsea, and in fairness, to him, the player has more than made the role his own despite his young age.

A player of that mindset can never be brushed aside, and a holding midfielder may be the difference between winning the league or not.
