But it seems the Anfield club are no closer to signing the RB Leipzig midfielder, with the Bundesliga side keen to keep hold of the Guinean.
Leipzig’s sporting director Ralf Rangnick previously dealt a huge blow to Liverpool in their pursuit of Keita, saying the 22-year-old is not for sale.
“We will definitely not be letting any key players go,” explained Rangnick.
“There’s nothing that will make us budge. It’s totally normal for clubs to be interested in our players, but that doesn’t affect our stance on the matter.”
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp responded by telling fans to remain patient in the transfer window, and have confidence that he will get his business done.
So far Liverpool have parted with £34million to sign former Chelsea forward Mohamed Salah from Serie A club Roma.
But they could be encouraged to break the club’s transfer record for a second time to land Keita, should his recent Instagram activity be taken into consideration.
Eagle-eyed Reds fans have noticed that the Guinean ‘liked’ a picture of him mocked up in a Liverpool shirt, suggesting he supports the idea of this being a possibility.
Of course, he could just be acknowledging the effort someone has gone to to suggest he will soon be a Liverpool player.
But the intention alone is bound to get Reds supporters talking.
