The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are desperately awaiting news of who manager Jurgen Klopp could be bringing to the club over the coming weeks, however, above any star names they all want one man to stay put.
The resident Reds fans are adamant that, if they are to make a success of the coming season, star man Philippe Coutinho needs to remain at Anfield.
However, there are worrying reports emerging from France concerning the Brazilian international. According to Le10Sport, French giants Paris Saint-Germain are readying a move to land the 25-year-old this summer as an alternative to both Cristiano Ronaldo and Monaco star Kylian Mbappe.
PSG are supposedly ready to fork out €80m for the Liverpool man, with those on Merseyside wanting another €20m on top of that if they are to entertain a deal.
However, our landlord reckons that it would show a serious lack of ambition and a disregard towards Jurgen Klopp’s work to date if they were to sell their star man.
Coutinho was vital to Liverpool’s success last season, bagging 14 goals in all competitions – more than any other player, meaning his potential move to Paris is far from popular here in the Tavern.
