Coutinho going nowhere - Liverpool issues statement

11 Août, 2017, 21:21 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Liverpool's owners Fenway Sports Group have made it clear that Brazilian Philippe Coutinho will not be sold before the close of the summer transfer window.

Sky Sports reports Barcelona are prepared to pay up to £110m for Coutinho and pundit Guillem Balague believes the Catalan side will continue their pursuit.

"We wish to offer clarity as regards to our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho", a statement on behalf of FSG read.

So far, the Reds have rejected all bids by Barca and the club has released a statement on Friday morning stating that "no offers would be considered" for Coutinho.

Liverpool would get in excess of £100m for their Brazilian playmaker in this insane summer transfer market and while that might look like good business to the number crunchers at Anfield, there is a much bigger overall story to look at here.

Liverpool did not respond to a request for comment.

"Liverpool will desperately want to keep him because it's not money in the bank you want, it's players on the pitch".

Philippe Coutinho could leave Liverpool this summer after submitting a transfer request to the club's hierarchy.

The test of that statement will come over the next couple of weeks.

Opening the season at Watford presents the Reds with an ideal chance to get off to a winning start, and Klopp's men must hit the ground running to make a flawless beginning to a hopefully successful campaign.

"Until the 31 August we run through the world with open eyes", Klopp said of his transfer problems. "That's the focus. If it's a win it doesn't matter who it's against".

Pochettino has been in charge at Tottenham since 2014, while Klopp is in his third season with Liverpool, making the forthcoming campaign a watershed moment for both bosses.

But without their talisman, Liverpool were never the same, and within a year manager Brendan Rodgers was gone.

Liverpool travel to Vicarage Road without their key man Philippe Coutino, but Jurgen Klopp has plenty of talent on the bench to replace the influential Brazilian.

On the subject of Liverpool's injuries, Klopp said: "Adam Lallana had this unlucky injury, Daniel [Sturridge] had a fantastic pre-season, he was close for this weekend but I'm pretty sure he'll be ready for Tuesday [against Hoffenheim]".

First coming to the attention of European football fans during two eye-catching seasons in Switzerland with Basel, Salah had his first stab at the Premier League with Chelsea in 2014.
