Liverpool fans react to update in Liverpool's January pursuit of Naby Keita

RB Leipzig intend to resist Liverpool's attempts to sign Naby Keita in January.

If Liverpool pay the upper end of that levy, it would make Keita the second most expensive midfielder ever signed by a Premier League club behind only Manchester United's deal for Paul Pogba.

Reports in Germany indicate that if Liverpool pay RB Leipzig a premium of £13m then Naby Keita can join the Reds this month instead of in the summer.

Since selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142m, boss Jurgen Klopp wants to bring Keita to Anfield sooner.

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. Last week CEO Oliver Mintzlaff rejected talk that Keita was pushing for an early move to Liverpool.

It is said that Leipzig may need to raise funds to comply with Uefa's Financial Fair Play and would be open to doing a deal for between £13m-£17.5m.

Keita's other red card of the season came while playing for Guinea as the National Elephants failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

However, with doubts over the future of Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho leaving for Barcelona, it has been rumoured Liverpool are interested in cutting a deal for the Guinean global to come sooner.

The Guinea worldwide will be unable to play in the Champions League but will give added squad depth in the Premier League as Liverpool battle for a place in the top four.
