Liverpool willing to go to €95M to sign Naby Keita immediately

Liverpool are willing to pay an extra €20m to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita this month.

The Reds have already settled on a €75m fee for Keita, who is scheduled to join in June. However, BILD says Liverpool are now offering an extra €20m to bring the Guinea international to Anfield immediately.

Publicly, RBL identities are adamant Keita will see out the season. However, behind the scenes it's suggested they will cash in on now so to fund their move for Benfica superkid Umaro Embalo.

After victory over Schalke, RBL and former Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi stated: "Naby is an incredibly important player for us. He showed today that he wants to continue playing with us."
