Naby Keita for £70m?: It's now or never for Liverpool

The 23-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from a number of clubs including Manchester City and Chelsea as his contract talks continue to stall, though Arsenal are said to have tabled a £100,000-a-week offer to the player.

Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff has claimed it would be "irresponsible" to cash in on the Guinea global before their first Champions League campaign but Keita has admitted ambitions of playing for "one of the very big clubs" and mentioned Liverpool earlier this week.

There's also local multiplayer gameplay, where up to four players can battle each other in four different split-screen game modes. Interactive Entertainment announced The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game today for Nintendo Switch , PC, PS4, and Xbox One .

According to Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce, Liverpool's chances of landing the Guinean worldwide could well rest on how Keita himself sees the situation. "Their stance is that he's not for sale and will stay put for at least another 12 months", Pearce explained in a fan Q&A this week. It seems unlikely that, should Leipzig be convinced to part with him, he would turn down a move to Liverpool. That potential pursuit is entirely separate and in the same Q&A Pearce stated that the England man is definitely not seen as a secondary option to Keita.

Liverpool are continuing to keep an eye on Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's contract situation amidst reports the Reds have approached the Gunners over the player's availability. Clearly, a lot hinges on what happens over his contract.

No motive has been suggested but analysts say it may be connected to the Russian-backed insurgency in eastern Ukraine. Ukraine's defence ministry has described a auto bomb blast in Kyiv which a colonel died as a "terrorist act".

The Reds have reportedly enquired about his availability and while a deal is not now close, it is understood Arsenal will reluctantly sell if their stand-off with the player over a new deal continues.

Yet his versatility and ability to drive from deep with his pace and power would make him a valuable asset for Liverpool, also weakening one of their top-four rivals - and one that they only finished a single point ahead of last season.

He swiped two more Thursday, giving him 22 steals in June, and a major league-leading 35 on the season. Turner's injury was confirmed by X-rays taken after the game.

"What makes me doubt whether Oxlade-Chamberlain to Anfield will happen is guarantees over game time". His speed and skill on the ball could see him play in either the middle or front three of the 4-3-3 formation that Klopp so often favors for his Liverpool side.
