‘Welcome to the biggest club in England’ – Lots of Liverpool fans are happy after club reveal

For the last year, the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been patiently awaiting news of a new arrival. The Reds have made a few moves since then, notably, Virgil van Dijk in January and Fabinho already this summer, but the player that has arguably been generating more interest than most is Naby Keita.

A deal has been in place for his arrival for a year, and so naturally, the anticipation in the pub has been palpable.

A central midfielder by trade, Keita has enjoyed a fantastic few years in the Bundesliga, having become a bit of a stalwart in the middle of the park for RB Leipzig.

Liverpool were clearly impressed enough to secure a deal a year in advance, and now they’re reaping the rewards of that decision – as this week he has been officially confirmed as a Liverpool player.

The Reds took to Twitter at lunchtime on Wednesday to offer a series of Tweets regarding Keita, with news including his connection with Steven Gerrard and confirmation of his arrival date revealed.

Naturally, plenty of Liverpool fans were quick to respond to the Tweets, and responses were fairly unanimous – they’re absolutely delighted to see him join.
