Jurgen Klopp replies when asked if Liverpool FC will sign 22-year-old this month
Jurgen Klopp discusses the speculation linking Liverpool FC with a move to sign Naby Keita this month instead of the summer
Jurgen Klopp has remained coy when quizzed about the speculation that Liverpool FC could be set to bring forward Naby Keita’s switch to Anfield to this month.
The Reds officially agreed a deal to sign the Guinea international back in the summer transfer window, with the 22-year-old set to link up with his new side at the end of the season.
However, there has been some speculation in recent days that Liverpool FC could be set to try and bring forward the deal and sign Keita this month by paying a premium to RB Leipzig.
Those rumours have gathered more pace after Liverpool FC confirmed the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona last week after the relentless speculation about his future.
However, Liverpool FC manager Klopp has insisted that he knows nothing about a potential deal to bring Keita to Anfield early.
Speaking at his news conference at Liverpool FC’s training base on Friday, Klopp said: “There is nothing to say. He’s a player of Leipzig, that’s what I know.”

The Reds are out for revenge after they were thrashed 5-0 by the Citizens in the top flight at The Etihad back in September.
