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.

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.

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.

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

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.
