The Reds confirmed a year ago that they had successfully agreed a £48m deal to sign Keita on July 1, 2018, but the recent sale of Philippe Coutinho has forced the Reds to attempt to bring the transfer forward.

The Reds struck a deal for the Guinean midfielder last summer, with the deal stating that Keita would arrive at Anfield in the summer of 2018.

He is effectively on loan at Leipzig, with the Reds now attempting to bring forward the deal following Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

Existing laws that deal with crimes against women could possibly be expanded to include crimes against children, he suggested. It is the 12th such murder in the town of Kasur in a year, and has raised concerns that a serial killer may be on the loose.

"The situation is the same as it was all season - there's no reason for us to let Naby Keita go early", he told the BBC.

Balague believes that Liverpool FC could be ready to make a move to pay extra to secure the signing of Keita in January rather than wait until the end of the season as has previously been agreed.

More than anything else, bringing the Keita deal forward would appease fans anxious allowing Coutinho to leave halfway through the season could disrupt the quest for a top-four spot and progression deep into the Champions League.

Klopp has already acquired the £75m services of Virgil van Dijk this month but may be tempted to bring in Keita to strengthen his midfield options.

However, since the deal with Liverpool came to fruition, many have criticised the star's performances with Bild reporting that the player has been ostracised by his teammates.
