Liverpool turn to Inter star as Leipzig reject huge new Keita bid

ESPN Report Update on Liverpool's Move to Sign Naby Keita

"We pretty much have all what you need, but at the end it is still business, whether you have the money", said Klopp, who recently saw a £57 million bid for Keita rejected.

The Guinea worldwide midfielder has been sought by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp this summer but Leipzig have maintained a strong stance over the 22-year-old and insisted he is not for sale.

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness says they must do what it takes to land Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

Naby Keita and Emil Forsberg remain "comfortable" at RB Leipzig despite continued speculation linking the duo with moves away, head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl says.

The versatile midfielder was in top class form last season and helped Leipzig qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their short history.

However, RB Leipzig do not want to let go of their star player. Keita wouldn't suit that role entirely as he likes to push forward too, but it appears as though United could try to swoop in and sign him which will leave Liverpool fans less than impressed.

Liverpool were expected to return with an improved offer for Keita this week, having seen their initial bid of around £57 million turned down. The only glimmer of hope for the Reds is that they could persuade Leipzig to sell by offering more than his £48m release clause.

Jurgen Klopp has been chasing Keita all summer and the Reds boss is desperate to make the Guinea global his third major signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah. The 26-year-old Croatian scored 18 times in 36 appearances last season and according to Bild newspaper, that has caught the eye of the Liverpool manager.
