    Liverpool Football Club can confirm they have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig for the future transfer of Naby Keita.

    The Reds have agreed a deal with the German club and the midfielder that will see the 22-year-old move to Anfield on July 1, 2018 following the conclusion of the current season.

    Keita, a Guinea international, joined Leipzig from Red Bull Salzburg in 2016 and scored eight goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances last term to help them to a second-place finish.

    “I am delighted that an agreement has been reached which will allow me to join Liverpool Football Club next summer, when I will become part of a project that excites me greatly,” he said.

    “My commitment to RBL remains absolute for the remainder of my time at the club. I have given my all every time I have worn the shirt – that will be the case until the final whistle, in my final appearance.

    “Having my future resolved means I can now focus on helping RBL achieve great things this season. Until I join my new club, next summer, I will remain an interested supporter from a distance.”

    Looks like a good bit of business. No doubt he'll be the most watched player in Germany this season.

    Good news and bizarre

    Why do we have to wait till next season if we've agreed to buy him now ?

    Massive upgrade on Can which is a bonus

    Can we now get an upgrade for Henderson for next season as well

    Anyway great news

    Probably to replace Milner or Can for next season. With Lallana turning 30 next year too, he will get a lot of games.
    Must be confident to dare take up #8 though.

    Keita supporting Mane Firmino Salah looks damn scary

    all we need now is to replace Henderson and build about four and a goalkeeper and it'll be a hell of a team to watch

    If it's based on a buyout clause which doesn't kick in until next season (what I've read from others on here), for whatever reason, then it would be hard to do that if they aren't accepting our bids to push it through now.

    They may be resigned to losing him eventually and wanted him for one more season which would explain the clause being active only in the future.

    JK very effusive over Oxlade - Chamberlain signing but, unless I've missed it, very quiet about signing Keita. I know Kieta's months away from arriving, but I found this strange.
    loyal since 1960.

    Hopefully he will talk about Keita once the window closes

    Yeah, I wondered about that alright. I wonder if it's because he's still a Leipzig player and the club wants to be respectful of that, I'd imagine it's something along those lines.

    I'm sure when he actually arrives he'll be raving about him.

    He doesn't need to speak about Keita. He knows exactly what he is and that's a pocket powerhouse. He's going to prove that the Scum overpaid on that £89 million wheelie bin.
