Liverpool dismiss Barcelona's claims about Philippe Coutinho

Without the club's first-choice option, Klopp will be looking towards teenage duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomes to fill the void on the right-hand side of his defence.

Albert Soler, Barcelona's Sporting Director, has spoken at a press conference today claiming that on Friday Liverpool slapped a €200m price tag on the Brazilian playmaker.

With Barcelona furiously trawling the market for some sort of alternative for Philippe Coutinho, they'd said to have bid for Thomas Lemar and Mesut Ozil, though nothing concrete had emerged from either late, late, bid.

Producing his best form for Liverpool will likely keep Barcelona interested in the meantime, so it's in both his and the club's best interests for him to focus on doing so.

Liverpool ended a successful transfer window by finalising a £35m deal for Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on deadline day. Removing Clyne from consideration for the Champions League seems to be an admittance he will not be ready now until December. He decided to stay at Monaco.

"The main priority was not to jeopardize the club's equity and economic viability...a club with 155,000 members must be managed reliably and responsibly", Soler said.

Germany coach Joachim Loew yesterday dubbed as 'shameful Nazi-era chanting by a hardcore group of 'so-called fans' during a World Cup qualifier. They also re-signed Gerard Deulofeu.

But there is one major difference between Suarez and Coutinho, the latter is more than replaceable.

"At the moment, the lads in the starting line-up are playing so well, he needs to wait".

He even scored Brazil's second goal - an awesome display of one-two football as he combined with Gabriel Jesus.

Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho is going through a time of "anguish, disappointment and sadness", according to Brazil teammate Neymar. We don't want them, we're not their national team, and they're not our fans.

Will he still be the same committed Coutinho from past seasons? "These troublemakers demean this image".
