With the Philippe Coutinho saga dominating much of the discussion amongst the punters propping up the bar here in the Transfer Tavern, the Liverpool fans who frequent in their droves really are bored of talking about it.
Indeed, with their brilliant Brazilian looking as if he’ll soon depart, debates in regards to the impact it might have on Jurgen Klopp’s team has grown rather tiresome. With that in mind, it’s time to revisit a question we raised to our local Liverpudlians of late.
Despite his exploits in South Korea with the England U20s, Dominic Solanke has failed to impress many of the Kopites in our bar. The 20-year-old is clearly a big talent, though relying largely on him to back-up the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah has left the Anfield giants a little light.
So, we asked our readers, was allowing Divock Origi leave on loan a good idea? The Belgian may not have been perfect, though he was a good servant to the Reds during his time on Merseyside and would have added a touch more experience to Liverpool’s second string.
However, it seems that a slight majority (52%) of our readers are backing Klopp’s decision to push Origi out for Solanke, suggesting they’d back the latter to come good.
