The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t want to see Coutinho leave the club this summer, and it would appear as though Jurgen Klopp is in agreement…
Speaking via the Telegraph, Klopp has revealed that the Reds are not planning on selling their star midfielder this summer. He said: “There are absolutely no plans [to sell him]. What our owners say is there is the absolute opportunity not to sell anybody if we do not want to”.
Coutinho has, of course, been touted with a move to La Liga in recent months – with a recent report from SPORT suggesting that the Reds had slapped a €90 million price-tag on his head.
This revelation has left the Reds in the Transfer Tavern ordering another round of drinks, with the retention of Coutinho clearly vital to Liverpool’s long-term plans. Since moving to the club from Inter Milan, the Brazilian has continually been a key member of the first team – and under Jurgen Klopp, his performances have skyrocketed in quality.
Having scored 10 times this season, it is clear that Coutinho has added goals to his game – which were arguably the only thing lacking during his early days at Anfield.
This summer will certainly be key for Liverpool, but before that – Jurgen Klopp must try and ensure a top four finish. The Reds are currently in third place, leaving many in the pub feeling confident, but as is always the case in the Premier League – anything can happen.
