Deal Close? Liverpool in talks to sign 'extraordinary' €30m sensation; Klopp desperate for transfer

Last week, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed that the club has already held 'positive talks' with a number of potential transfer targets, and one of those targets appears to be RB Leipzig star Naby Keita.

In recent months, multiple reports have claimed that Liverpool are keen to sign Keita this summer, and two new reports this week claim that:

* Klopp is 'desperate' to sign Keita after missing out on him last summer.

* The Reds are currently 'in talks' with Keita's reps over a transfer.

* Keita is valued at €30m by Leipzig.

Liverpool's interest is legit, and Keita confirmed this in October, when he told reporters:

"Arsenal, and Man City...were interested in signing me, and Liverpool as well".

Liverpool arguably need at least one combative midfielder, and Reds fans seem keen on the deal.

I conducted a poll last month asking fans if LFC should sign 'extraordinary' Keita, and a whopping 91% of participating fans voted YES to the deal.

Reds legend Jan Molby is a fan of Keita, and in a recent column for the Echo, he enthused:

"I'm encouraged to see Liverpool linked with Naby Keita. He's a player, and he reminds me of N'Golo Kante. He has that same level of potential and looks as though he'd make the step up in his stride"

Comparatively speaking, €30m is a fair price for a player who may offer some of the same qualities as Kante. Plus, it possibly means that Emre Can will be relegated to the bench, where he belongs (IMO). Should Liverpool pursue Keita this summer?
