However, with the Merseyside club now even more flush with cash following the Coutinho sale, it is believed a portion of that money could be used to bring forward Keita's move in order to allow Jurgen Klopp's men to more strongly challenge for a top four finish in the Premier League (Keita is cup tied for the Champions League).

After Leipzig's Jean-Kevin Augustin had a penalty saved by Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann, Keita struck by rifling a shot home off his right boot on 41 minutes.
European's elite competition could be a vital factor in any possible deal though as RB Leipzig are fighting for qualification into the Champions League and may want to hold on to such a player.
