With all the problems that Liverpool are enduring at the moment, the club's fans are eagerly awaiting the transfer of Naby Keita to the club next year. 

After a summer of speculation, Jurgen Klopp finally secured his signature when they activated his release clause, however they will have to wait until the summer of 2018 until he officially arrives at the club.

An all-action midfielder who can contribute in both defence and attack, Keita was instrumental in guiding RB Leipzig to an unlikely 2nd place finish last season.

And fans of the Merseyside club will be even more excited after Leipzig's Sporting Director, Ralf Rangnick, delivered a glowing review of Keita just a few days ago.

In an interview with German magazine Kicker, per the Liverpool Echo, Rangnick said: "He’s one of the best I’ve worked with in 20 years of professional football.

"I’d also prefer, 10 times, that we’d kept him for another five years - but we are just not able to pay salaries in excess of €10m."

Due to his contribution, the Bundesliga club were determined to keep hold of him for at least another year, but it seems that decision has backfired massively.

Prior to yesterday's game v Bayern last night, Keita had already been sent off twice in just over a month.

And, his lack of discipline showed again when he was sent off for two bookable offences against Bayern.

Multiple red cards in such a short time frame would usually worry most people; but the majority of Liverpool fans are actually pleased he is being sent off.


Keita's red cards are making Liverpool fans even more excited about his transfer, as it would provide them with a player who shows fight and is not afraid to put his foot in.

Others see it as proof that Keita is desperate to play for the English giants and proof that he is trying to force through a January move, whereas others are happy he is receiving red cards as it is keeping him fit and injury free.
