Naby Keita to Liverpool: Possible shirt numbers for new arrival

The Guinean midfielder is set to join the Premier League club in July but there is a hope that a deal can be reached that would lead to Keita's early exit.

The report suggests that Leipzig may need to raise funds in order to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules and would be open to an early move if Liverpool pay between £13m- £17.5m.

Jurgen Klopp was coy when quizzed over a potential early Liverpool arrival for Naby Keita.

This was despite public claims from Leipzig that they would not allow Keita to leave this month.

"In fact told there's been "no progression at all" following initial discussions."

The news sparked rumours that Keita was preparing for life in England.
