Liverpool starts to spend the money on Coutinho
Part of the money that Liverpool received for Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona could be used to advance Nabi Keita. The midfielder of the RB (Leipzig) has already agreed on about 50m euros and has to join the Merseyside after the end of the season. Liverpool, however, is trying to get the national of Guinea now, and according to Bild, the German club is willing to negotiate. The newspaper says Leipzig will release Anfield’s 22-year-old midfielder 6 months earlier against additional compensation of 15-20 million euros.
From Liverpool they contacted their German counterparts immediately after the sale of Coutinho. Initially, in Leipzig they were not fascinated by the idea of splitting earlier than planned with one of their most important players, but then changed their position. Since the beginning of the season Keita has 20 games and 5 goals in the Bundesliga.
The other news about Liverpool is related to Roberto Firmino. According to The Telegraph, he has received a contract proposal that will keep him in Liverpool for the rest of his career. Brazil’s current contract is until 2020.
