Liverpool look set to complete the signing of RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.
The Guinea international was expected to head to Anfield on 1st July after a deal was agreed last Summer for the African to become a Liverpool player this year.
But manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to bring forward the signing after losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in a £145m deal earlier this month.
Keita is also hoping to move forward his switch to Merseyside and has given another indication that the move will happen soon by registering a new company called ‘NK8 LIMITED’.
The company has been registered on the Companies House website and the two people listed as officers are Naby Deco Keita himself and Bjorn Alexander Bezemer.
Bundesliga journalist Chris Williams has also added weight to the speculation by tweeting that the deal could happen as soon as Sunday, which would allow Keita to spend most of the second half of the season at Anfield.
