Coutinho going nowhere - Liverpool issues statement

11 Agosto 2017, 09:18 | Cornelio Vivanco

Reports claim Philippe Coutinho is desperate to join Barcelona.

Dortmund issued a statement to the German stock exchange this week in which they confirmed that a bid from Barca, which is said to be close to €100m, had been rejected. His link-up with Coutinho for his goal against Leicester City, in particular, is sure to have Liverpool fans buzzing with excitement. "So the power is very much with them". The only other transfer business to the date has been the free agent addition of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, who has looked a shrewd signing so far during the pre-season.

Liverpool are battling a handful of injuries ahead of their opening league game, with Klopp confirming that striker Daniel Sturridge will also be absent through injury. The quality promised has not been delivered.

Coutinho signed a new five-year contract without a release clause in January, which emboldened Liverpool to promptly and strongly rebuff Barca's approaches as well as the pressure from an offensive to unsettle their standout star.

Regardless of who is in the Watford side or who Klopp selects in his team, Liverpool will go into the game with confidence and looking to get off to the kind of start they did last season.

It is understood Coutinho - who is out of Saturday's Premier League clash with Watford because of a back problem - declared his desire to leave the Merseyside club on Friday by submitting a transfer request via email.

Jurgen Klopp wants the squad to stay together for now so that they can have few dilemmas to make hard decisions for in the course of this season.

Liverpool's owners have shut down Barcelona's pursuit of Philippe Coutinho by stating "no offers will be considered" and he will remain a Liverpool player when the window closes.

Delaney added Barcelona could be forced to go beyond the £100 million mark if they want to convince Spurs to part with one of their finest talents. Instead of depending on one player, the team has to come up with a unique style and technique of playing to make them stand out from the rest of their rivals.

But Leipzig and indeed Southampton have stood steadfast in the face of the bigger corporation at Liverpool.

"I was clear, the club was clear, he was clear on his position".

In itself, the reveal is relatively harmless but there's an intriguing story rumbling underneath this latest deal which is further fueling the speculation Liverpool's star player could move to La Liga.

The Reds boss said that Lallana's injury is "really unlucky" and said that Clyne has suffered from his "problem" since "the first day".
