Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'No change in Naby Keita agreement'

High price Liverpool have questioned Monaco’s valuation of Lemar

Liverpool are set to welcome RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita on Sunday.

The Reds agreed a deal last summer to sign the Guinea global, which will not officially go through until the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

But after Philippe Coutinho's £142m move to Barcelona earlier this week, Kop boss Jurgen Klopp wants to get Keita in immediately, says the Daily Star.

They are aware they will need to offer the German side more money - and they are willing to do so.

Having said that, the Liverpool ECHO reports that there is no agreement in place yet after initial discussions between sporting directors Michael Edwards and Ralf Rangnick failed to produce anything concrete.


This was despite public claims from Leipzig that they would not allow Keita to leave this month.

The news sparked rumours that Keita was preparing for life in England.

Keita, who will wear the No. 8 shirt at Liverpool, is listed as one of the two officers and the nationality, country of residence and occupation all suggest that it really is Keita's company.

Respected football journalist Raphael Honigstein wrote on Twitter: "interesting.it's legit". "He is a player of Leipzig, that is what I know, and in the summer here, that is what I know as well".
