Liverpool Football Club’s Naby Keïta move is supposedly very close to completion, with more details expected to come by Friday. 

Some possible good transfer news, finally!

Twitter has been rife with unreliable stories in recent weeks with every second account supposedly ‘In The Know,’ such is the nature of the transfer market, but Graeme Kelly, a known to be reliable source of Liverpool Football Club information, has just dropped a serious bombshell on his Twitter account.

Kelly responded to a question about the Guinean midfielder with the following:


“All I know is it’s close mate. Real close. I will know more on Friday pal.”

Now, as always, we have to take this news with a pinch of salt. However, Kelly is generally renowned on Twitter as being a reliable source of information who will only post what he knows to be fact.

The news come just one day after the StarAfrica African Footballer of the Season for 2017 dropped a hint that he’s still gunning for a move to Merseyside by liking a mock-up on Instagram depicting him in a Liverpool shirt, while also lining up with former BBC journalist Ben Smith’s claims that the club’s transfer dealings would accelerate this week.

If the Reds have indeed moved into a position where they’re close to wrapping up a deal, it could see the Guinean join the Reds in time for their pre-season tours of Hong Kong and Germany, an ideal scenario for boss Jürgen Klopp.
