Alan Shearer says Liverpool must sell Philippe Coutinho

Alan Shearer says Liverpool must sell Philippe Coutinho”

Klopp is reported to have since met with Coutinho to inform him once again he would not be sold this summer, especially given the player was happy to sign a new five-year deal in January. The fickle nature of football I guess.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request on Friday, with Barcelona having had two bids rejected for the Brazil worldwide and there have been widespread suggestions that the Catalan club will return with a third offer of £100 million. They still trust Coutinho's professionalism, but didn't expect this official request to happen.

"So they're piling the pressure on and that's why Philippe's reacted".

"I know the kid, I know he's not a bad person, I know he doesn't want to cause a war to come out". We gave him the chance, we built this player up.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request yesterday in an attempt to force through a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

Gerrard however believes this could be an even bigger test for the club than convincing Suarez to stay was back in 2013, with Coutinho's head not only turned but the fanbase in pandemonium.

A couple of months and a transfer request later, the situation with the Southampton captain has not changed, Liverpool still carries the same defensive line-up and all the baggage attached going into the season.

Insigne is said to be worth £60million, but the Serie A side aren't ready to let him leave after he helped lead them to a 3rd place finish last term.

Stubbornly holding on to an unhappy player might not augur well for Liverpool, but they have identified a ideal replacement in Insigne, and they must do everything within their power to get him once Coutinho packs his bags.

"I'm not involved. I think Jurgen's got it under control, I think FSG have got it under control, and they're the key".
