Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see their side begin their campaign against Watford this weekend.
The Reds are one of six sides expected to challenge for the Premier League title this time around and our landlord reckons they have as good a chance as the others if their best players stay fit.
For sure, the club needs the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah to remain fit but, arguably, the man they need most is Philippe Coutinho.
The problem is, of course, is that he is still getting linked with a move away and – according to Le Parisien – via Sportsmole – PSG are still keen on the midfielder.
Indeed, Reds fans may have thought that the club from the French capital might have not bothered with chasing the Brazilian now that they have forked out all that money on Neymar.
It seems, though, that there is still money in the bank, though, and it really does remain to be seen if a club can prise the player away from the club before the end of the market.
Keeping Coutinho is of vital importance to the Reds’ chances this season and it would make sense to think that Liverpool are not going to sell at any cost.
The only way the player will leave, then, is if he decides to try and force a move away from Merseyside.
Thoughts, Reds? Let us know below!
