“Unbelievable move” – Liverpool fans react joyously to Naby Keita signing

Liverpool have agreed a record fee to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita next summer, news which has been met with delight by Reds supporters.

One of the longest-running transfer sagas in recent Liverpool history finally has its conclusion, with Keita set to move to Anfield on July 1, 2018.

The highly-rated Guinean underwent a medical on Monday morning in Wilmslow, as the Reds acquire the signature of one of Europe’s most highly-rated midfielders.

It is a move many had written off, but Jurgen Klopp has once again played a blinder in the transfer market, with the general mood at the club very happy after Sunday’s 4-0 win over Arsenal.

Here’s how supporters have reacted to the news on social media.


Kanonkop on the forum:

Excellent news and forward planning.


LFCFFC on the forum:

Fantastic signing, really well played out to appease RBL and still get him locked away, albeit not until next year.

Kept it under wraps, no leaks, met their valuation. Nicely done. Welcome Naby. You’ve got a year to figure out what trim you want at your new favorite barber.

Great deal don’t really care if Couinho stays now.
