Keita would have added a different dimension to the Reds midfield. As he is very strong in possession and difficult to take the ball off. His defensive nous, ability to scythe through the phases of the field and his change of pace, are some abilities that made him a great Premier League football player. Liverpool’s willingness to pay so much for the player is because of his talent and they would keep an eye on him throughout the 2017-2018 season. There exists a £48 million release clause in the midfielder’s contract that becomes active at the end of the campaign, that would bring other clubs into the race. However, the Reds need more new faces if they want to push for the title.
