Naby Keita could be sold in order to fund the deal for Thiago Alcantara.
Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been heavily linked with the Reds since the past few months but Liverpool’s hierarchy made it clear that they need to sell players before they can sign new ones.
Earlier reports suggested that personal terms between Thiago and Liverpool has been agreed but their interest seems to have disappeared.
Fenway Sports Group, the owner of Liverpool, made it clear that no players can be brought in until funds are raised from sales.
Naby Keita’s name has been proposed as someone who could be discharged in order to make room for Thiago.
It’s highly unlikely that the Reds boss will let go of the Guinean after his impressive form since Project Restart.
Klopp on Keita after his marvellous display against Brighton last month, ‘Absolutely great. He is getting better and better, step by step and game by game and that’s really cool.
‘I am really happy about that. Long may it continue, let me say it like this. When him and the boys stay fit then everything is fine with the quality they have, the way we play suits them.
‘Tonight, being a player like Naby but winning these balls… come on, as a coach – and as the coach I am – I couldn’t be happier about these kind of goals. Everybody is involved in that and I am really grateful for seeing things like this.’
