The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t want to see any key players leave the club this summer...
However, it appears as though their worst fears could be about to get realised – with SPORT reporting that the Reds could finally be ready to do a deal for star midfielder Philippe Coutinho. Significantly, though, it would appear as though any club that has an interest in Coutinho must have the funds to back up their interest – with Liverpool reportedly ready to demand over €90 million.
Translating to roughly £75 million, that sort of money would put Coutinho up amongst some of Europe’s most expensive ever players, but it is difficult to argue that he is not worth that sort of money.
A catalyst in the Liverpool first team, Coutinho has been vital for Jurgen Klopp since his arrival, quickly becoming the focal point of the Reds’ attack. He has been unavailable on occasion this season, and Liverpool have really suffered as a result – highlighting just how important he is.
For many in the pub, selling Coutinho would be a nightmare – but a fair few fans would be able to see the positives if the deal was worth as much as €90 million. That sort of money would, of course, allow the Reds to invest heavily in other areas – potentially allowing Klopp to improve his side drastically.
It is going to be a very interesting summer at Anfield…
