Liverpool FC told they’ve made the signing of the season
Danny Murphy is tipping Naby Keita to be one of the Premier League's top signings this summer
Danny Murphy believes that Naby Keita will end up being the signing of the summer in the Premier League this season.
The Guinea midfielder is currently getting used to life under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield after having signed for the Reds from RB Leipzig in the summer transfer window.
Keita will be hoping to establish himself as one of the main starters in the Liverpool FC team this season as he bids to help the Merseyside outfit challenge for the Premier League title.
Liverpool FC have made a flying start to the new campaign after having notched up victories against both West Ham United and Crystal Palace in their opening two games.
And Murphy feels that Keita is set to be one of the top midfielders in the Premier League this season following his move to the Merseyside outfit.
Speaking in an interview with bwin, Murphy said: “Keita will be the Premier League’s best signing this summer.
“Liverpool will expect a lot from him and I’m expecting him to take them to next level. He’s a very dynamic player, very powerful and very quick.
“You can see the obvious potential he has got and the fans will be looking to him to dictate the midfield.
“Keita’s challenge will come when he plays against Liverpool’s rivals in the Premier League.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how he does fighting against the likes of [Paul] Pogba, [N’Golo] Kante and Fernandinho and finding out if he has the ability to match those players in those games. I hope he has the mentality to carry that burden of expectation.”
Keita will be hoping to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action on Saturday evening with a home clash against Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Merseyside outfit are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and challenge for the trophy this season.
