Naby Keita to Liverpool

Liverpool have opened talks with Leicester ace Riyad Mahrez

"Nothing has changed", said Ralph Hasenhüttl, the Leipzig coach, before his team's match on Saturday against Schalke 04.

Philippe Coutinho has thanked Steven Gerrard for helping him "become a better player" at Liverpool.

Their stance indicates that they do not want Keita to go, although there are suggestions the 22-year-old's mind is already on his Premier League move.

It's a minor annoyance for Liverpool, who could easily stump up the cash following the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142 million.

A deal is already in place to take Naby Keita to Anfield next season, but Jurgen Klopp is said to be keen to add the Guinean worldwide to his side ahead of schedule.

Coutinho's transfer surpasses the previous club record set by Dembele, whose fee was an initial 105 million euros ($126 million) that could eventually rise to 147 million euros ($176 million) depending on his success.

All eyes are on the harrowing Hulu series about a near-future dystopia where women have been stripped of all their rights. One thing that's clear is the journey for Offred is far from over.

They told the BBC: "There is nothing new about this situation and so that speculation is not true".

Liverpool appear to be keeping their transfer business very close to their chest since last summer's debacle with Van Dijk, but the names they are being linked with should allow fans to feel excited.

Regardless of what is being said elsewhere in the media, and regardless of what RB Leipzig are saying publicly, Bild state Naby Keita can move to Liverpool this month for the right price.

Liverpool boast an array of exciting attacking talent but Klopp will have to find a way of knitting it together in the absence of the departed Brazilian.

A photo of Keita sitting out of Leipzig's training session this morning - he was sitting on a cart; it wasn't clear if he was sitting out or just taking a break - certainly fuelled the notion among Liverpool supporters that he is eager to move this month.

Keita has endured a hard period since the transfer to Liverpool was announced, scoring just two goals this season and being sent off three times in three competitions in the space of 39 days earlier in the campaign.
