In regards to Keita, The Guardian writes that: "Liverpool have been handed encouragement in their attempt to sign Naby Keïta from RB Leipzig, although the German club have indicated that they are not prepared to allow the Guinea worldwide to leave for less than £70m".

However, there is a stumbling block in place, and it's a major one...

German newspaper Bild has said that the Bundesliga club RB Leipzig have named their price for Naby Keïta.

Keita scored eight goals in 31 appearances and his performances attracted the attention of a number of clubs across Europe.

Above all others in the chase for Keita have been Liverpool, with the Merseysiders reportedly desperate to add a top-class midfielder to their ranks this summer ahead of their return to the Champions League.

As such, RB are under no pressure and hope their valuation will do enough to scare off Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who had put the player high on his wanted list.

While transfer speculation concerning Keita continues, another reds midfielder Emre Can has helped his national side Germany into the Confederations Cup final.

Liverpool tied up their first signing of the summer last week as winger Mohamed Salah joined the Reds in a club-record deal from Roma.

According to Sky Sports: "Liverpool are interested in signing Kylian Mbappe but they are not convinced that he wants to move to England".

The £70.4 million asking price was created to ward Liverpool off, but soon after, the Bundesliga runners-up face trying to get the best fee possible for a player that no longer wants to remain at the club.
