They're def gonna nab Naby. On the liverpool forum I'm on I joked that right now, in terms of stages of grief, RB Leipzig's owner is in denial and is gonna move from there to bargaining and then acceptance in a matter of weeks. It's not in RB Leipzig's interest to block this move because it'll make it harder for them to lure other young prospects to come play for them. They, like Southampton, are--I don't want to say feeder club cuz that has derogatory intonations but--getting 10 young prospects so one of them hits as a 60M transfer is their business model. And blocking these moves ultimately messes with their business model in a way that's not sustainable for them.
A lot of Liverpool ppl I know are convinced VVD is still happening too. I personally would prefer they get two 30M defenders (some comp for Milner and a CB) instead of one potentially injury prone 60M CB.
