Klopp Demands Signing of $120million Midfielder for Liverpool

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is constantly linked with a move to Barca and more than a few players are linked with a move to Anfield to replace him.

Two days back, we covered a report (via Don Balon) claiming that Liverpool want Barca to sell Rafinha in their deal to sign Coutinho.

Now, according to Diario Gol, Klopp is not interested in the likes of Rafinha and Turan but the only player he wants to replace Coutinho at Liverpool is Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes.

The Spanish source have mentioned that Gomes is not as talented as Coutinho but his physical attributes make him better suited for Klopp’s system.

The 24-year-old star can effectively play anywhere in the midfield (DM, CM, AM) and he was a key member of the Seleccao side that lifted the Euro 2016 trophy in France.

After winning the competition, Andre joined Barca from Valencia and since then, he has mainly been a bench warmer at the club. This season, so far, he has only started four games in all competitions for the Catalan giants.

His current deal with Barcelona will expire in 2021 and it has a huge release clause (FCB) of 100 million euros ($120million). In your opinion, is Gomes good enough to replace Coutinho?
