Naby Keita to Liverpool: Possible shirt numbers for new arrival

There have been conflicting reports about Naby Keita's Liverpool move

Liverpool have already agreed a deal to sign the midfielder in the summer for £51 million, which was set to be a club record fee before Virgil Van Dijk joined for £75m at the beginning of January.

Naby Keita will not be allowed to join Liverpool this month, according to RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl. Leipzig had initially taken a hard stance to the move, denying that they had any need to sell him.

Jurgen Klopp was coy when quizzed over a potential early Liverpool arrival for Naby Keita.

But reports in Germany state that the club are looking to offer a further payment to RB Leipzig so that Keita will move to Anfield this month.

The news sparked rumours that Keita was preparing for life in England.


Keita, who will wear the No. 8 shirt at Liverpool, is listed as one of the two officers and the nationality, country of residence and occupation all suggest that it really is Keita's company.

Pearce writes: "Speculation that Leipzig are about to relent and grant Keita his wish was fuelled by the player registering a private company called "NK8 Limited" to a London address with Companies House this week".

It's easy to see why there's so much excitement surrounding Keita but Klopp refused to discuss the Leipzig midfielder's situation when he spoke to the media on Friday.

Liverpool are willing to pay an additional premium to sign the player early but Leipzig are trying to convince him to stay until the end of the season to help them secure Champions League football and possibly a decent placing in the Europa League.
