      Keita isn't having the best year apparently, neither was Van Dijk. I think having your head turned can lead to a temporary drop in form. I'd hate to miss out on Lamar then he turns out to be with the hype.
      I think the £90 price (although I think I would be less) is too much if a risk for safety first FSG to be honest.

      I thought Keita was having a good season? Saw something not long ago about how well he was playing and getting some cracking assists or something.

      Then he got a few red cards and just played a bit sh*te. He doesn't really want to be there.

      As for Lemar, not worth 90m. Nobody is. Lemar has been average this season.

      I’m not really following him this season to be honest, but if he is playing bad (obviously because he has had enough there), then can people blame us for letting Coutinho go? If we kept him, he might have gone on to play sh*t. At least Keita isn’t faking injury to not play though.
      Ultimately, as long as he smashes it for us, don’t really care how he plays for them.

      That's how I feel about it too. 3 red cards just shows Keita just  doesn't give a crap about Leipzig, they should have let him go.

      Keita isn't actually playing that bad, but the more I watch him, the more I realise he isn't gonna solve our midfield alone. We really do need a midfield enforcer that can distribute better than what we currently have, and along side Keita, we can then start looking at winning midfield battles.

      Oh, and Keita is kicking off in 10 mins time on BT sports if anyone is interested!!!

      I read somewhere his manager questioned his attitude, but I don't watch German football though.

      Think in terms of all the players moving or being linked with moves, certainly big money ones anyway, Keita has probably conducted himself the best. As far as I'm aware he hasn't actually submitted a transfer request in the summer did he? Don't remember seeing anything about refusing to play, train or whatever either. Unlike Coutinho with a request and faking injury, VVD with a request and not with the team at the start of the season, Mahrez request and gone AWOL.

      But like you, I don't really pay much notice to the German league so I could be completely wrong.

      As far a I know, Keita was informed by the club that Liverpool wouldn't pay anything extra to secure hie early release, and he accepted it. Sure what's 4 more months to a young lad like him? Not worth kicking up a fuss.

      Keita is having a good season. Van Dijk was injured and came back from injury in September (did not have a proper pre-season). Klopp probably found better alternatives than Lemar and FSG paid 75m to bring in VVD and that's a big risk, so you're really misinformed.

      For that kind of money though you would expect it to be a player that is easily recognizable in world football. I don’t know that Lemar is? Before our interest in him I’d not ever really heard much of him. He’s not necessarily saying much but still.

      Would've say it's a big risk paying that for Van Dijk. The man has proven his quality in the Premier league. Lamar at big money with no PL experience would qualify as a risk imo, but due to his age COULD be a risk worth taking.
      Doesn't look like it's happening so it's a moot point.

      I've no idea if he's worth that much, but I'd hate to see another player we missed the boat on.

      Is it a-sense-eo or ass-en-sow?

      Also, don't believe it myself but I also wouldn't say no to the transfer either.

      We were linked with him before Napoli signed him. Diawara is another on their books that has a bright future too isn't he?

      Pretty sure Liverpool did offer to pay more - not sure how much more - so "wouldn't pay anything extra" is not accurate.

      Depends where you read it mate. I heard They were looking to much and we wouldn't pay it.

      Didn't know we was linked to him, and tbh, I doubt we will get him. He will either stay with Napoli or go to Barca, Real, City or Chelsea imo.

      As for Diawara, I don't really watch Napoli when Jorginho isn't playing, but the little I have seen of him when he comes on, he does look good (probably would be an improvement over the players we have in the deepest midfield role), but you can also see a drop in level with Napoli being weaker in possession play.

      It's always hard to judge how players will adjust with the move from Serie A to the Prem and vice versa.  For example, Lucas couldn't get a game at CM for us last year, but is a regular at Lazio and is having a really good season -- he's even got a goal and a few assists to boot!! 

      Whoscored.com gives Lucas an average rating of 7.17 for the season.  Jorginho is at 7.13

      I'm not saying Jorginho isn't a good player, but history hasn't been kind to a lot of players who have made the move from Italy to England.  Obviously, Mo Salah shits all over this theory....

      Lucas has been great for Lazio this season hasn't he? It's mainly because he is staying fit and getting a long run of games in his main position. I always thought he played very well when called upon and was very underrated for us, especially in the #6 role. Diego pulled up stats to show we were defensively stronger with Lucas in the team oppose to when Hendo started there, but I understood why Klopp went for Hendo or Can as they were more reliable in terms of fitness.

      Anyway, I think Jorginho will fall into the Coutinho and Salah bracket, his style of play would be perfect for us, especially with the midfielders we currently have which will compliment him. He is truly world class and for me, better than Alonso was when he was the same age.
