Leipzig again rule out early Keita Liverpool move

Liverpool are in talks with RB Leipzig in a renewed effort to make a breakthrough in their bid to bring over Naby Keita during this January window.

Coutinho completed the switch to the La Liga giants on Monday for €160m.

An Irish Liverpool fanatic has posted a video online of a chant he'd like to hear on the terraces as Jurgen Klopp's side take on Manchester City this Sunday.

"The last impression you leave is the one that stays the longest". Lallana is still not fully up to speed but when he is, the England worldwide is an important part of Liverpool's team pressing, mobility, and ball-carrying in midfield.

He is coming to Merseyside to play in the Champions League - it would be criminal if he didn't join until the summer, and Liverpool missed out on it.

In Lallana and Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp has players who will offer less in attack than Coutinho but will work harder and allow Liverpool to retain a better defensive shape. It is on a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

And Gomez only views Van Dijk's arrival as a positive.

GETTYLiverpool are hunting a replacement for Philippe Coutinho

Keita is set to join Liverpool from RB Leipzig on July 1 but there have reportedly been attempts to get the Bundesliga club to sell him now rather than in the summer.

"I played with N'Golo for a season and there was not really a game I didn't enjoy playing next to him".

As these stats show, despite Murphy's claims to the contrary, Keita is a far more dynamic and creative presence in midfield than, say, a Henderson or a Mascherano.

This week, Barcelona finally signed Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool for a club record fee of £142 million.

"There is nothing new about this situation and so that speculation is not true", Leipzig head coach Ralph Hasenhuettl said on Thursday (11 January), the Daily Telegraph reports.

City are now unbeaten after 22 league games this term and are 15 points clear at the top of the table.
