While the rest of the world speculates how Liverpool are going to spend their £142 million windfall from Philippe Coutinho, the club appears to be prepared to make Roberto Firmino the first direct benefactor.

In a disheartening turn of events for the Liverpool FC fans, their star has made a big money move to Barcelona and just like that, the transfer saga is over. Lemar will cost in the region of £90 million but is a highly sought-after player.

All three are in the last six months of their contracts and could be picked up in the summer for free.

Although the loss of Coutinho is a major setback, the club does not believe the sale of key players will become a trend under Klopp as it did for the manager in Borussia Dortmund. In our opinion, here is Liverpool's strongest XI after Coutinho's exit.

Having earlier been presented at a photocall, Coutinho posted a short video message on the Barcelona Twitter feed.

The sides who have most troubled Manchester City this season are those who have sat deep and conceded possession to Pep Guardiola's slick Premier League leaders. However, he's the only one, so far, they've agreed a fee for.

The general feeling is that you can off-set the Coutinho loss for six months by strengthening the side elsewhere, and then buying 'the one' in the summer. The Reds will have to stump up an additional 15-20m euros in payment. The club's own budget prediction for this campaign says sports costs, which includes player salaries, will rise to €588m - up from €432m last season.

Slowly but surely, Klopp is creating a team capable of becoming a genuine force in both England and Europe - patience has been required, but it is paying off.

The Merseysiders are in constant dialogue with the Bundesliga club to establish what it would take to push the Guinea midfielder's £57million move forward.

"The situation is the same as it was all season - there's no reason for us to let Naby Keita go early", he said.
