Philippe Coutinho has made a strange request that's got Liverpool fans thinking

PSG paid his £198million buyout clause meaning Barcelona could not do anything to keep him

Adding the Brazilian's quickness of thought in midfield to Mane's pace and power up front would make Liverpool even more potent.

With such a short period of time to go, I'm still none the wiser as to whether Barcelona will be able to sign the Liverpool player, Philippe Coutinho.

Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool are believed to have turned down a £119m offer for Coutinho, maintaining the Brazil international is not for sale.

"We all have our own problems". I don't know, but I think that will happen. "He's becoming a fan favourite here, he scores all kinds of different goals". It is why Liverpool so far have rejected every Barca bid, even with Coutinho handing in a transfer request. Now they think he is really strong.

Without knowing all the details it is hard to say if Klopp is being honorable in his principles or inflexible in his stubbornness. During the summer break he spent time back at the training ground practicing his free kicks over and again and the club staff were very impressed.

"We will see what happens". I'm not sure. Will I be more happy?

According to beIN SPORTS, Coutinho has asked not to be featured in Liverpool's Champions League squad.

"He's on our injury list, that hasn't changed", Klopp added.

Klopp had hoped Liverpool's transfer business would have been done and dusted by now, but with just four days left until the end of the window they are still looking for reinforcements. Maybe after Coutinho's reported desire to be left out of the Champions League squad, the Reds may have no choice but to accept this one.

In top-flight meetings against the two Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea last year, the Reds won five and drew five.

Liverpool are preparing to face a tedious season this year, and have secured reinforcements in the form of Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has today provided more positive news on the transfer front as he aims to add to his squad before next Thursday's deadline.
