Although Jurgen Klopp does not accept it, Liverpool need a last reinforcement in this transfer market that closes on August 31, especially because of the injuries of several players at the beginning of the season, as the recent case of Naby Keita who could not play in the classic against Manchester United.

The German manager has given hints that the club must sign in the remainder of this market and one of the names that has appeared is that of Leandro Paredes, a player who would be on his way out of Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Calciomercato, Naby Keita's injury yesterday forces the English side to look for a new midfielder who can fulfil his duties on the pitch and this would undoubtedly be the Argentine midfielder, who does not fit in Christophe Galtier's plans and is pushing to leave in these last days of the market.

Paredes has been linked with Juventus, but the Italian side do not seem willing to pay the 20 million euros that the Parisians are asking for, something that the Anfield side would be willing to do, especially due to the lack of players in midfield. 

Naby Keita's injury

Although there were some rumours that it was because Naby Keita's contract has not yet been agreed with the club, Jurgen Klopp spoke about the Liverpool midfielder's injury, after in a strange situation, he did not even come off the bench to be considered for the derby against Manchester United.

"We need more assessment, but it doesn't look like he will be in training tomorrow. But we need more evaluation. It's only Sunday, yesterday, and then if we know more tomorrow, I don't know," the German coach told a news conference after the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford.
