Naby Keita, hurry up and start playing for Liverpool already, would you?
The Guinean is a confirmed signing for the 2018/19 season, but it’s so hard watching him perform so brilliantly for Rb Leipzig when he’s already agreed to join us!
Against Porto in the Champions League on Tuesday night, he was tremendous, putting in the kind of performance that made us pay £48m plus a premium for his services.
Below, you’ll see his individual highlights.
What we love most about Keita is the way in which whenever he receives/retrieves the ball, he looks up and plays forward. Whether this is with a dribble or a pass, his intentions are the same.
This is going to be absolutely perfect in our midfield, which is occasionally accused of slowing down our attacks by going sideways or backwards.
We’d love to see him line up alongside Coutinho in a three man midfield with a proper anchorman behind them, but time will tell if the Brazilian remains at Anfield.
