Liverpool really need to hold on to their best players to progress next season but it seems that they are going to lose star playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Barcelona sold superstar Neymar to PSG for a world record fee and now reports suggest that they are close to replacing him with Coutinho after reaching an agreement worth 100 million euros with the Merseysiders (ESPN).
ESPN have stated that Klopp did not want to sell the Samba star but the player himself made it clear to the owners about his desire to move to the Nou Camp.
It is further mentioned that Coutinho could officially become Barcelona’s record signing on Wednesday and could make his debut against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday.
The former Inter Milan star’s performances helped Liverpool qualify for the Champions League and Klopp will need to sign a top quality replacement if the Brazilian departs. As per the provided ESPN link, West Ham star Manuel Lanzini is being eyed to replace Phil.
