Liverpool have been struggling to agree on a deal with RB Leipzig all summer for their highly rated central midfielder Naby Keita. The Reds have made two very generous bids for the Guinean international but have seen both turned down, they’ve now tabled a third ‘take it or leave it’ bid, and should that offer be rejected, here are five players Liverpool can sign instead of Keita.
5Gylfi Sigurdsson, Swansea City
This would be one of the most audacious swoops of the summer and would make him hated on one side of Merseyside with Everton currently interested in Sigurdsson.
However, if Liverpool do move for the Iceland international and steal him from under the nose of their bitter rivals it really would be shrewd business. Sigurdsson has Premier League experience and is a real set piece master who can cause trouble to any defence.
With nine goals and 13 assists in the league last season, Liverpool should get in contact with Swansea over a possible deal.
