In a move that has come completely out of no where, Liverpool have signed Naby Keita on a pre-contract agreement, meaning he will become a Red next summer. They have paid a premium for the right to pay his release clause £48m early with Keita having a medical today. It has to be believed that this comes as a preemptive strike to beat Barcelona to the Guinean International’s signature. Likened to a cross between N’Golo Kante and Andres Iniesta, Keita is a very exciting prospect that has Reds all over the world salivating. Following a summer of on-again-off-again negotiations, it is a fantastic coup for Klopp and his back room staff. Hopefully, it is the first of a few more. Watch this space!
