(Video) Pre-season footage of Liverpool new boy Naby Keita running circles around Stoke City

Jurgen Klopp finally got his man after Liverpool completed the £48m signing of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig last week.

A box-to-box midfielder by trade, Keita was instrumental for the German side in 2016/17. Dragging them from mid table obscurity, the number 8 helped them finish runners-up in Bundesliga.

He continued his form this pre-season against Stoke City, running rings around the usually robust Stoke defence.

Stoke had a hard time dealing with the midfielder’s surging runs and fantastic tackling ability. Perhaps an indication of what can be expected of the Guinean in the Premier League.

Liverpool fans will surely be salivating at the prospect of Keita lining up in their squad. Check out this moment of brilliance below –
