Liverpool Want Roberto Firmino To Sign 'Life Contract'

Vidal, who has only featured ten times for the Catalan giants this season, was signed from Sevilla in 2015 for £13m. What is startling, though, is that the proposed new deal will commit him to Anfield for the rest of his career in a kind of extreme reactionary move to Philippe Coutinho's departure.

"So he will play at the weekend against Schalke".

They also claim that Firmino is likely to be one of the "major beneficiaries of Liverpool's injection of cash" from the Coutinho sale.

Give Everton credit, they were much better on Friday than they were in the league, and Liverpool didn't play particularly well.

The France global picked up a hamstring injury in September and, despite recovering, is taking time to rediscover the form that made him the second most-expensive player in history. Should either Keita or Van Dijk turn out to be as shrewd a buy as Luis Suarez was in January 2011, the club will have done excellent business.

Klopp said: "My understanding is there is nothing to say".

To avoid that, they could simply keep the money in reserve with the summer in mind, though that would be the biggest risk Klopp has taken yet at Anfield. This year he has 16 goals already, second only to Salah.

This final bit from Chamberlain sums up how Liverpool fans should regard Coutinho going forward with productivity in mind.

Coutinho scored 54 goals in 201 appearances for Liverpool.

Sources have told Sky Germany that Leipzig are reluctant to let Keita go in January, even for an improved fee.

As well as Suso, other names in the hat to replace Coutinho are Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez and Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

Without a doubt, there will be another "Coutinho" out there, a player available for a small fee that turns out to be worth millions, but in today's insane and competitive market, it'd be a surprise for Klopp to go down that road.
