News was seemingly breaking all yesterday in the media about a raft of potential replacements at Liverpool for the now departed, Phillipe Coutinho (£3.88). There were mentions of players from all over Europe, including Alejandro Gomez (£1.74) and Christian Pulisic (£1.79) as journalists speculated on who Jürgen Klopp would look to bring in with the Coutinho money.
But then just as everyone was getting ready for bed, the same news was breaking from multiple sources that Liverpool were looking into the possibility of bringing forward the already agreed summer transfer of Red Bull Leipzig’s Naby Keita. This news has of course been mentioned before but the stance from the energy drink club was always a firm no. Yet, last night it appeared the Germans would be willing to accept a further £13 Million to do the transfer in January on top of the previously agreed price for the summer. Add in the fact that the player himself wants to move and it appears that this move is one to watch and the Index of course reacted!
You will see sitting this morning that sitting atop of the £ Increase list (at time of writing) is the Leipzig midfielder. Keita is up an incredible 39p in just 24 hours, nearly a 20% increase and is currently trading at £2.38 a future. The Index seemingly jumping on the news around half past ten last night and the Guinean international has risen steadily ever since.
How much further could he rise should the move go through in January, £3? And have Liverpool got their Coutinho replacement sorted?
