Transfer activity is picking up ahead of Thursday's deadline. The big move of yesterday was Liverpool announcing the signing of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. The Guinean will arrive at the club in July of next year after he completes one final season in Germany. No exact fee was given, just the word that it is more than the £39 million they paid for Mohammed Salah earlier this summer.
There were other minor deals going down as well. Arsenal sold Kieran Gibbs to West Bromwich Albion for the low price of £5 million or so. The left back will leave pending a medical. Arsenal also appear to have agreed to a £40 million fee to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Chelsea.
The other side of North London made a sale as well. Tottenham sent defender Kevin Wimmer to Stoke for £18 million. The Austrian international made all of four starts for Spurs last year after arriving from FC Koln on an undisclosed fee.
