Liverpool fans react on Twitter to reported interest in Bundesliga sensation

By Matt Farr

Liverpool are believed to be eyeing up a summer move for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita – and fans on Twitter are excited.

A Goal report claims that Liverpool are one of a host of top European sides interested in signing the Bundesliga sensation.

The 22-year-old has been a star performer for Leipzig this season, contributing four goals and seven assists as the German side continue to defy all expectations.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were promoted to the Bundesliga at the start of the season, but a blistering start to life in the top-flight sees them in second-place after 22 matches.

They are just four points behind leaders Bayern Munich, having topped the table themselves for much of the first-half of the campaign.

Although they are not likely to be willing to sell one of their most prized assets, Liverpool fans on Twitter have already allowed themselves to get worked up over the prospect of him moving to Anfield in the summer.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Keita moved to RB Leipzig at the start of the season for £13million, and is contracted to the club until the summer of 2020.

Premier League rivals Arsenal, as well as German duo Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are understood to be prepared to rival Liverpool in their pursuit of Keita.

Liverpool will, however, consider themselves a fair shot to land the midfielder as the player is represented by the same agency as current Anfield star Sadio Mane.

In other Liverpool transfer news, a bid has been tabled for this Brazilian teenage sensation, who has been compared to Neymar.
