      Good news but don't get the point in a medical now given he's an entire season to play for another club.

      Surely the deal should be subject to a medical next summer?

      Probably just general health checks; his blood, heart etc.

      Medicals aren't just for fitness or injury at the moment.
      They're used to check historic records, look for anything that could be problematic in the future, any tendency towards particular injuries, etc. As well as general fitness and health. There's much more to it than 'he's fit to play for us next week'.

      I get that but surely we'll do another medical next year as well before he official becomes our player.

      Anyway great news.

      I'd have been happier if they had signed him this year and agreed to loan him back.
      Gives us much more of a say in how he's utilised.

      Weve signed Keita for next summer and going now for  Lemar of Monaco.

      So lets do the same with Barca and Coutinho .


      Liverpool have agreed a club record deal to sign Naby Keïta from RB Leipzig next summer and are also interested in prising Thomas Lemar from Monaco before the transfer deadline on Thursday.


      Keïta, Jürgen Klopp’s prime midfield target for this summer, underwent a medical in England on Monday after Liverpool finally reached agreement with Leipzig over the terms of his transfer. Liverpool are to activate the £48m release clause in the midfielder’s contract – a clause that comes into effect at the end of this season – and will pay a premium to secure the deal now.

      Barcelona have been among the rival clubs linked with the Guinea international and Liverpool have moved to ensure Klopp will get his man.
      Leipzig have refused to consider selling Keïta in this window but have accepted a deal that will allow them to retain the player for their debut Champions League season while earning more than his eventual release clause.

      The 22-year-old, who had a medical in Wilmslow on Monday and is expected to finalise the move at Melwood, will officially become a Liverpool player on 1 July 2018.

      I don't understand how we signed him a year in advance. I thought transfers had to be done in their respective windows.

      Think this is a real coup, and credit has to be given to the negotiators and Klopp.


      Is right.

      Seems like we have people on board who this time around know exactly what they are doing.

      Bit of a surprise this, eh.

      Well played LFC, almost as good as you are on the pitch.

      I think I'm starting to smell sunlight towards the end of this tunnel.

      EDIT: hang about, this isn't bollocks is it? need to be sure

      The best part of this, is that it took everyone by surprise including the media. Nobody had a sniff this was about to happen until it did. Maybe we are learning.

      “I am delighted that an agreement has been reached which will allow me to join Liverpool Football Club next summer, when I will become part of a project that excites me greatly,” said Keita.

      “My commitment to RBL remains absolute for the remainder of my time at the club. I have given my all every time I have worn the shirt – that will be the case until the final whistle, in my final appearance.

      “Having my future resolved means I can now focus on helping RBL achieve great things this season. Until I join my new club, next summer, I will remain an interested supporter from a distance.”

      Completely understand them wanting to keep him another season, if he helps them qualify for the Cl again, it will have been a smart move.

      Great news, wish it happened this summer though.

      I know they're not the same type of player, but to me this suggests Couts is staying for another year.

      Good to have some positive news on the transfer front. Now, address the glaring CB shortcoming and let's not make our appearance in CL a one hit wonder.
