Klopp hands Liverpool immediate transfer boost

coutinhoooLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are ecstatic with the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as their new manager- and are already singing his praises after a major impact on the transfer front.

Philippe Coutinho was heavily linked with an exit in January, with Barcelona and Real Madrid keen, but The Metro states Klopp’s arrival has changed the situation– and the Brazilian will remain on Merseyside.

Coutinho was disillusioned with the Reds under Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked on Sunday, but the arrival of former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp has convinced Coutinho to stay-put.

Liverpool still have work to do to keep Coutinho long-term though, as his agent confirmed he is targeting Champions League football; which means he could eye a move elsewhere next summer if the Reds fail to secure a top-four spot.

Our punters believe that keeping Coutinho is a major boost for the Reds and that Klopp can get the best out of the South American, who will then lead Liverpool into Europe’s elite competition.

Liverpool currently sit tenth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth spot and six points off the summit.

Liverpool fans, how big a boost is keeping Philippe Coutinho? Let us know in the comments!
