Liverpool need to replace Philippe Coutinho as soon as possible in the January transfer window.
The Brazilian star was world class for the Reds this season and Klopp should not wait for next summer to sign a replacement.
The Merseysiders have already agreed a deal (last summer) to sign Naby Keita for next season but recent reports have suggested that the British giants want to seal the signing of the African star this month.
Yesterday, Kicker provided two crucial transfer updates about the Merseysiders. The renowned German source claimed that Liverpool wants to sign Keita immediately and they are stepping up efforts to bring the 22-year-old star this month even though Leipzig are reluctant to lose their prized asset in the middle of the campaign.
Moreover, Kicker state that as per their information, Emre Can is not going to leave the Anfield club this month and would only move when his contract expires in the summer transfer window.
A versatile midfielder like Keita will largely strengthen Liverpool’s midfield but it must be remembered that he will not be able to feature for the Reds in the Champions League.
The Guinean international played for Leipzig in the UCL and scored 2 goals in 5 outings. Overall, Keita has played 20 games this season, scored 5 goals and provided 1 assist.
