Transfer to LFC? 91% of Liverpool fans want Klopp to sign 'outstanding' €20m midfield sensation

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly planning a summer move for Leipzig star Naby Keita, but what do fans think about this potential transfer?

On Wednesday, multiple reports claimed that Liverpool are keen to sign €20m-rated Keita, but face stiff competition from Arsenal, Man City, and Bayern Munich.

Liverpool's interest is legit, and Keita confirmed this in October:

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

Liverpool arguably need at least one tough, combative midfielder, and Reds seem keen for Klopp to seal the deal. I conducted a poll asking fans if LFC should sign Keita, and the results were emphatic, with 91% of participating fans voting YES to the deal.

Some info about Keita, who has the same agent as Sadio Mane.

* 22-year old box-to-box midfielder, described as 'equal parts Kane, Pirlo and Gerrard'.

* Bundesliga (Salzburg/Leipzig): 24 goals/18 assists (42) in 102 apps (One every 178 mins)

* Scouting Report (Strengths): "Constantly plugs gaps when team-mates vacate position. Impeccable anticipation. Phenomenal range of passing. Expert dribbling. Adept at playing through rigorous pressing".

* Jul 2016: Sporting director Rangnick enthused: “He [Keita] fits our team perfectly with his dynamism, outstanding technical and tactical skills”

* Feb 2017: In negotiations with Leipzig over a record-breaking salary deal.

A viable summer target?
