Given Jurgen Klopp’s show of faith in the No.8 has been somewhat rewarded this term, it would be a bizarre move on our part to sell the midfielder having already lost Gini Wijnaldum.

Injury prone as Keita has previously proven to be, we simply can’t afford to lose yet another midfield option without a replacement.

Even so, given how promising the early signs from the 26-year-old have been, it would be somewhat harsh a decision to part ways with him at this late stage in the window.

Do Liverpool trust in Naby Keita? Or throw the kitchen sink at getting Saul Niguez?
