Liverpool FC on verge of £8m left-back signing

Naby Keita has his heart set on a move to Liverpool and will hold talks with Red Bull Leipzig

Naby Keita has his heart set on a move to Liverpool and will hold talks with Red Bull Leipzig

However, Leipzig have been steadfast in their stance that he will not be sold and they have contacted the Reds to re-emphasise this.

After reports that Liverpool's bid of £57 million for Naby Keïta had been rejected by RB Leipzig, it was strongly suggested that an improved bid would soon be made to accelerate a potential move to Merseyside for one of the most unique midfielders in world football.

The newspaper says negotiations between Liverpool and Hull are almost finalised so Robertson should be given the go-ahead to undergo his medical and complete his switch over the coming days.

Lucas has moved a step closer to signing for Italian outfit Lazio although no agreement is in place at the time of writing. That Klopp, a manager who would normally back away from a transfer if he feels the would-be selling club are asking for too much money, is insisting that owners FSG proceed with the £65m bid show shows this.

Last season, the 22-year-old contributed eight goals and seven assists from 31 league appearances as the Red Bulls finished second in the Bundesliga table.

With any team that Klopp's in charge of us, you're buying in to his 'team-first' philosophy and becoming a part of his blueprint for success at the highest level. He said of the player, "He links up very, very well".

Liverpool have already smashed their transfer record this summer after signing Egypt international Mohamed Salah in a £36.7m deal from AS Roma.

It has been claimed that a release clause worth €55m will come into effect next summer and Inter are looking to convince the player's representatives about a move next year.
