Reports: Reds agree on Keita deal for 2018
    2017-August-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LIVERPOOL has agreed on a club-record fee to sign midfielder Naby Keita from Germany’s RB Leipzig, with the 22-year-old set to join the English Premier League club in July 2018, British media reported Monday.

The Merseyside club will pay the Guinea international’s 48-million pound (US$62 million) release clause plus an undisclosed premium.

Liverpool is yet to make an official announcement about the deal but reports said Keita completed a medical Monday.

Keita was reported to be one of Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp’s key transfer targets after he scored eight goals and provided eight assists to help Leipzig finish second in the Bundesliga last season.

The 22-year-old would become the Reds’ most expensive signing, surpassing the 42 million euros (US$50 million) they paid to sign winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma in June.

Meanwhile, Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez hinted that he is negotiating with Liverpool over Philippe Coutinho and hoped to complete a deal before the transfer window closes.

After signing Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for a fee, which could rise to 147 million euros, Fernandez announced his intention to bring in two more players.

“It’s true we are in negotiations over a player to try and sign them. We hope to reach a deal and present a new player,” Fernandez told a news conference when asked about Barcelona’s hopes of signing Brazil playmaker Coutinho.

Barcelona had also been linked to Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri. “Seri is totally ruled out. After analyzing (the situation) calmly, we decided that our priority was other positions,” Fernandez said.

Coutinho plays in a more advanced role than Seri and is reported to be Barcelona’s top target, with Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria also linked to the club.(SD-Agencies)
