Liverpool cult-hero Titi Camara reckons we stand a very good chance of signing Naby Keita, with Red Bull Leipzig prepared to let the 22-year-old leave.
Camara played for us at the start of the century, but importantly – is from Guinea – just like our primary midfield target Keita.
Personal terms have already been agreed with Red Bull Leipzig’s star, but we still have to reach a price agreement with his German club – something not expected to be easy when they’ve previously claimed he’s not for sale.
But according to Camara, they’ve accepted the situation and are now actively looking for a replacement.
From what I’m led to believe naby has his heart set on #lfc move. Leipzig have been informed of his intent and are looking for replacement

Keita’s going to cost a whopping sum, but Liverpool are ready to stump up should Jurgen Klopp say a his targets are worth it.
If RB agree to sit down at the negotiating table, we’re confident we’ll get our man – but much depends on whether Keita can convince Red Bull he truly wants to leave.
