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.
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.”
6/5 Naby Keita to join in January
4/7 Naby Keita to join in summer
3/1 Julian Draxler to sign in January
11/10 Riyad Mahrez to sign in January
10/1 Alexis Sanchez to sign in January
