Liverpool supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern have had a lot to discuss of late, and Teamtalk has fuelled the latest line of debate.
The publication has cited reports from Spanish publication Sport which suggest that La Liga giants Barcelona are plotting a £22.25 million bid for Liverpool’s attacking playmaker Phillipe Coutinho, and this has really upset the majority of Reds fans here in the Tavern!
Liverpool have found themselves the centre of conversation here in the Tavern all week, with Brendan Rodgers being sacked from Anfield being the main point of debate.
Our landlord feels that the Brazilian star is one of Liverpool’s most talented players, and it would be an absolute travesty to lose him in January!
Our regular Liverpool fans over by the pool table here in the Tavern admit they aren’t surprised that Barcelona are interested in Coutinho, because when he is on song, he can be one of the Premier League’s most lethal attacking players.
At the age of just 23, the player still has a sizeable amount of his career left and he is only going to get better, so it is surely essential that the Reds keep hold of their Rio de Janiero-born star.
Liverpool fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you be gutted to lose Coutinho to Barcelona? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
