Naby Keita is FINALLY a Liverpool player!
This morning, the club unveiled Naby Keita as a Red, after we agreed his future transfer all the way back in summer 2017.
"It was an incredible day for me." 🔴

Steven Gerrard travelled down from Glasgow to present Keita with the no.8, the shirt he wore so brilliantly throughout the majority of his Anfield tenure.
Keita has posed for countless brilliant pictures, which you can check out by following the link in the above tweet.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best reaction from fans who’ve been patiently waiting some time for this moment!
Keita is now officially the second biggest signing in the club’s history, behind Virgil van Dijk, who arrived for £75m in January.
The 23-year-old performed wonders at Rb Leipzig for two seasons, but now has far greater expectations at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
We’ve been crying out for a player who possesses his tremendous skill-set for some time – and combined with the addition of Fabinho – our spine looks inherently stronger.
Keita could now make his debut in ten days’ time on July 7, in a friendly against Chester!

Apparently, a picture is worth a thousand words – and you really can see just how big a personality Naby Keita is from these snaps.

As I inject the Keïta content into my veins, I'd like to thank everyone who shared this journey. The red bull boycotts, the racist Ralf scandal, the Segas and the Amoudous, the Joyce notifactions. Together, we made it.
