Odds slashed on Naby Keita to join Liverpool in January

Let’s face it, they need some good news after Philippe Coutinho’s exit…


The odds of Naby Keita heading to Anfield this month have been slashed today, amid reports that Liverpool could pay a fee to get him early.

As a result, we have cut his odds of joining Jurgen Klopp’s side in January from 20/1 all the way to 6/5.

The early arrival of the midfielder, who signed a contract to join the club this summer, would surely be influenced by the £142m departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona last week.

Failing that, The Reds could also look to Leicester for Riyad Mahrez (11/10) or Arsenal, for the want-away Alexis Sanchez at 10/1.

Asked about a possible early transfer for Keita spokesman Paddy Power said: “It looks like Klopp is calling in the reinforcements following Phil Coutinho’s not-so-shocking move to Barcelona.

“On the plus side, surely the cash from the transfer can fund an early move for Keita? Get him on the plane, lads.”
