Arsenal risks losing £50m star to Liverpool if Naby Keita transfer tactic is repeated.

Jurgen Klopp’s tenure at Anfield is coming to an end with just three games remaining. Arne Slot is expected to take over from Klopp, with Liverpool having already agreed on a compensation package with his current club, Feyenoord. It’s anticipated that personal terms will be a mere formality, as Slot has publicly expressed his desire for the job. Slot is set to take on the role of ‘head coach’, primarily focusing on coaching and team development.

He will collaborate with the new sporting director, Richard Hughes, to identify transfer targets, but won’t wield the same level of control as Klopp. There are speculations about Liverpool’s interest in 22-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt defender, Willian Pacho, despite Frankfurt’s reluctance to let him go this summer. There are concerns that Pacho’s value will increase after another year in the Bundesliga, and reports suggest that Liverpool is hoping to negotiate an attractive proposal for his transfer. The potential move for Pacho aligns with Liverpool’s need for a central defender following the expected departure of Joel Matip on a free transfer.

In addition to potential defensive reinforcements, reports indicate that Feyenoord’s Lutsharel Geertruida is keen to join Slot at Anfield. With Klopp’s achievements at Anfield, it is noted that Keita’s progress was hampered by injuries. Keita made only a few appearances last season before joining Werder Bremen on a free transfer. However, his return to Germany has not been smooth, resulting in his suspension until the end of the season after only playing five times for his new club.
