Stunning development claims Liverpool could unveil Keita signing on Sunday

Stunning development claims Liverpool could unveil Keita signing on Sunday

Substitute Timo Werner scored one and set up another in the second half to cancel Naldo's equalizer as Leipzig moved a point above Schalke, and 13 behind leader Bayern Munich.

Naby Keita is reportedly on the verge of being unveiled as a Liverpool player, even though he is not due to sign until the summer.

But after the match, Rangnick insisted Keita has not informed them of a desire to leave.

Any early arrival for Keita may mean that the Reds will have to pay a premium to get their man, although the report goes on to state that Liverpool will not try and force the move due to their good relationship with the Bundesliga outfit. He will be a Liverpool player in the summer.

Naldo levelled but Werner's entry turned the game around in favour of the hosts. Referee Felix Brych allowed the goal to stand.

"We didn't play the stars out of the sky but it was an important win for us", said Stuttgart coach Hannes Wolf, who acknowledged Hertha was the better side.


Fuellkrug netted the resulting penalty on 38 minutes, then hit the winning goal 15 minutes from time to complete his hat-trick.

There was a happier return for Germany striker Mario Gomez, back at Stuttgart after an eight-year gap, as he helped seal a 1-0 win at home to Hertha Berlin.

Stuttgart climbed away from the relegation zone and was just four points behind Hertha in mid-table.

The result leaves Stuttgart 12th, one place below Hertha, who hit the post through Austria global Valentino Lazaro in the first half.

Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim played out a 1-1 draw as Czech worldwide Theodor Gebre Selassie's second-half goal for hosts Bremen cancelled out Benjamin Huebner's first-half header.

Eintracht Frankfurt and Freiburg also drew 1-1 while Augsburg moved on to 27 points with a 1-0 victory over Hamburg SV.
