Coutinho Hands in Transfer Request, Wants Barca Move

Coutinho is understood to have emailed Liverpool director Michael Edwards after training today expressing his desire to leave the club.

It turned out to be an average season at best for Watford last season.

Many Liverpool fans are anxious their club have done relatively little in the transfer market, signing only three players, and so far failing to land their two most significant targets - RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

But it was claimed by Sky Sports earlier that Coutinho had handed in a transfer request.

At the end of the day, the club has a great manager in place here and they need to back him because we do not want him questioning the club's ambition.

Captain Jordan Henderson will be available after returning from an illness which kept him out of the club's final pre-season friendly in Dublin last weekend, Klopp stating his absence was to avoid "any risk".

The Catalan club has repeatedly made hefty bids for the 25-year-old, with the latest bid being reported at £90.5 million. No price at which we are ready to give in.

Liverpool legend Gerrard left the club in the summer of 2015 after falling out of favour with then-boss Brendan Rodgers.

"Until the 31 August we run through the world with open eyes", Klopp said of his transfer problems.

To be fair, my heart was in my mouth for literally a minute because that's how long it took for a plethora of reliable Liverpool focussed journalists to completely squash the reports like a stuck fly.

The failure to capture Naby Keita from Red Bull Leipzig after weeks of speculation and multiple rejected bids is a stark mirror image of Liverpool's dismissal of Barcelona.

At least Liverpool coaxed a stellar season out of the Uruguayan before selling on.

This time, Liverpool appear determined to stem the talent drain.

Speaking to the Weekend Sports Breakfast, the former Barcelona, Leicester and Tottenham striker said: "As a player, it's very hard to turn down Barcelona or Real Madrid".

First coming to the attention of European football fans during two eye-catching seasons in Switzerland with Basel, Salah had his first stab at the Premier League with Chelsea in 2014.

Instead, they have been reminded that their status is diminished.

Troy Deeney is a major fitness doubt as he works his way back from injury.
