RB Leipzig intend to resist Liverpool's attempts to bring Naby Keita to the club in January, according to reports. Professional, good athlete, does his job really, really well.

With the possible addition of Thomas Lemar and Leon Goretzka this month it appears that Liverpool may have finally put together the pieces that are necessary for them to truly compete for the title under Klopp. Someone like Gerrard, Souness, Alonso, Mascherano - these type of players.

The Guinean has received three red cards since agreeing a move with Liverpool in the summer, including two for Leipzig in the space of 39 days - one in the league and one in the cup.

However, Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl told reporters on Thursday that Keita remains a part of his plans for the foreseeable future. The club gained 160 million euros ($192 million) by selling Coutinho but has lost his long-range goals, technical skills and passing range from central midfield.

The Belgian has scored four goals in 18 appearances since joining on loan in the summer and the Bundesliga club recently confirmed their interest in signing Origi.

According to filings, Google took control of the startup back in August and then subsequently shut down the company's website. A spokesperson for Google refused to comment on the price of the acquisition or any further details.

The Brazilian signed a five-and-a-half year deal at the Nou Camp last week after Liverpool finally gave up hope of keeping their star man.

He also averages 1.8 key passes per 90, which his potential Anfield positional rivals Henderson, Can and Georginio Wijnaldum cannot match.

And Salah, who has been in sensational form this season, revealed how much he enjoyed playing with Coutinho at Anfield.

Yes, he has just spent £75 million on defender Virgil van Dijk, and Naby Keita is set to arrive from RB Leipzig in a £57 million deal at the end of the season. Liverpool's January business may have become a whole lot better.
