Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are gearing up to the Merseyside Derby tonight with smiles on their faces because of The Daily Star’s report suggesting Philippe Coutinho will be offered a new deal.
The tricky Brazilian has arguably become the Reds’ best player this season with his incredible performances alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane so far.
The trio’s goals have led the club into a title push but they have missed him recently after he was stretchered off against Sunderland with an injury a few weeks ago.
He should be back in the next couple of weeks, though, and it appears it’ll take a lot longer than that for people to forget just how important he is to the club’s title chances.
The Reds want to keep hold of their best players as they eye at least Champions League football next season and our landlord thinks keeping Coutinho is paramount to that.
Will this contract keep Coutinho for the long-term, Liverpool fans? Let us know below!
