I feel like we have 2 weeks to makes a midfield and CB signing; potentially being Coutinho's "replacement." I don't know this guy but if Klopp likes him, I hope we can get this done. The African Xavi sounds promising. We need some creativity in this midfield without Cou and Lallana.

Who would his comparable in the squad be? I'm guessing from the article above and the 2 links I clicked from Google that he's similar to Keita? So kind of Wijnaldum style player?

We desperately need more creativity in midfield with Lallana and Coutinho out.

I'm just glad to see a legitimate link to someone not named Kieta or VvD. There has to be more than one midfielder out there who will fit what Klopp wants. Be great to get one over the line.

Ed Aaron's record isn't much better than @Mascot88 i think. Isnt he something like 0 for 2 for players we were supposed to be signing?

After our summer to this point, I like that it's not coming from the usual sources. They'll all be on the phone trying to figure this out now. I don't think Aaron's terribly unreliable.

This a huge drop off from Keita.
I'd be disappointed if this is our backup target.

Release clause, mate.
Suggestions that isn't legally binding - just a gentleman's agreement. Hopefully it is though but if he's as good as some are saying surely we'll have a fair bit of competition for his signature?

At least it is someone.

If Keita deal is dead til next year it's decent cover.

Anyhow here is his Nice form from last year.

Nobody has heard of this guy...

But had anybody heard of Keita before he was linked?

That endorsement by Xavi is glowing

He is African and we seem to love signing Africans at the moment.

Bit of a worry that he is only 5'5 we've already got no height in the team!!

Like I said on the RT, he was the guy who made the difference in the matches against Ajax, without him Ajax would have gone true to the playoff stage.

Interesting. I wonder how this compares to Naby and Lallana. It would perhaps say a lot about how he will be used.

If you read through Ed Aaron's twitter feed, he's been tracking Barca's interest in Seri for a while. They just signed Paulinho. So maybe this is a fake given to Aaron to try and put pressure on Barca, or maybe we're willing to move now that Barca has seemed to sign someone else. Either way, it makes sense Aaron broke the news. A player that Barca is sniffing around can't be all that bad.

He's short and a bit lightweight. Not a replacement for Can then.

Isn't Keita also a bit small as well? Is this for real or is it a wake up call for RBL? Gives us Keita or we'll buy someone from a different village.

Saw him play against Ajax recently and he tore them apart.

Not much else I know about him.
