    I guess it's always possible they might lose the qualifier while the window is still open...

    Though I think that would cup tie him for our CL games, assuming we make it ourselves.

    There's Hector at Cologne, but after the way last year's pursuit went it doesnt seem that misssing out on the CL (on a side that wasnt expected to make it anyway) would be the thing that makes him available

    That's possible, but I hope to god we've already got our stuff done by that stage of the window.

    Just watched him for 55 minutes before he was subbed didnt really do much other than score a goal but Leipzig have been so much in control he didnt need to do much, what is clear from this and the Mainz game is even though he is a DM he will score goals as well

    Signing Keita would be quite a coup, as he'd be the ideal player to have rotating with Lallana who will also need replacing in a couple of seasons given that he's already 28.

    That said, all the top clubs will probably be looking to sign him this summer so it's a tough one...

    Barcelona need to make signings in midfield to phase out Iniesta (32), Rakitic (29), and Busquets (28), so I'd be surprised if they aren't in for Keita this summer.

    Likewise, Bayern need to replace Alonso (retired), and Man City and Chelsea need to add a midfielder too.

    Interesting to note that Andre Wisdom is on loan at Red Bull Salzburg, RB Leipzig's sister club.

    That always struck me as a rather odd loan move, but perhaps it was made with a view of sweetening relations ahead of future transfers between the RB franchises and Liverpool... Hmm

    Ralf Rangnick said RB Leipzig don't want to sell their players, but realistically if top teams come calling would young players like Keita or Werner really want to stay? Leipzig are after all massively overachieving this season, and their salary structure isn't as big as you'd think.

    Although if we beat Palace we're 100% there, right? So maybe we can start shopping on Monday if that goes well?

    At this rate we should all just tune in on the first day of every season and transfer window and then the last day of every season and transfer window and let a computer simulation sort out the rest.

    can't count on hendo to be available, and though can has been better lately, he's not the same kind of stabilizing influence

    ideally you get somebody who can play in front of hendo, or next to him, or in place of him. that would seem to be keita

    if he wants the move, they'll sell
