Liverpool had confirmed in August that Naby Keita would become an LFC player at the beginning of the 2018/19 Summer transfer window after agreeing a deal for more than United States dollars 68 million.

The Reds agreed a deal last summer to sign the Guinea global, which will not officially go through until the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

German outlet reported that the Bundesliga outfit were open to the possibility of letting their star-man go in the winter window, a claim which the club are refuted in public.

It has been reported in Germany that RB Leipzig are now more open to letting Keita go this month and will apparently be willing to do so if Liverpool pay an additional Dollars 17 million as Leipzig need to generate extra revenue to not fall foul of UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.

Such funds may not be so hard to come by considering the £145m deal that saw Philippe Coutinho move to Barcelona earlier in the week.

Liverpool FC have already signed Virgil van Dijk from Southampton this month.

Liverpool hierarchy have approached Leipzig about securing a deal that could get the player to Merseyside this month.

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.
