Liverpool still a 'top team' without Philippe Coutinho — Pep Guardiola

Alan Shearer Liverpool tighter with Van Dijk but futher reinforcements needed

Jurgen Klopp claims Liverpool had 'no other option' in selling Philippe Coutinho.

"That was unlucky, it was an open game".

Leicester are currently 8th in the table and would not like to lose their prized asset in the middle of the season.

"But we tried everything".

Even with Coutinho out of the picture, the Catalan knows the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino represent major threats to his side, who hold a 15-point advantage over Manchester United at the Premier League summit. And who can blame him. It was clear he was not ready to do that anymore.

Liverpool have been looking at the possibility of bringing forward RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita's already-agreed summer transfer to this month to offset the loss of Coutinho.

With Virgil van Dijk signing for £75 million just days earlier, cynics said that Coutinho's sale helped partly fund Liverpool's world-record spend on the Dutch defender. "It was always my dream to wear the Barça shirt and today I'm here and I'm very happy", he said. We will bring in other players, that's for sure.

There has, since Klopp took over, been a lot of speculation about how much control the German has over transfers and more specifically the budget. But for me? It's business as usual. "You always need to react". It's about the atmosphere in the club.

The France international has notched 13 goals and registered six assists in 16 League games thus far. That would be not too cool.

Liverpool flush from the £142 million they got from offering Coutinho are hoping to fortify their squad with administrator Jurgen Klopp hoping to purchase players justified back and focal midfield positions. "The club is trying everything to do things differently". "We have played fantastic football without Phil. We only have to carry on". He was five years here and was here since I came in. Will it happen? Watch this space.

Liverpool are thought to have received around £106m up front from Barcelona, with a further £36m to come in the form of add-ons.

Shearer - the Premier League's all-time top goalscorer - believes neither will join Liverpool in the current window as the club take their time weighing up their options. "I had to lie down on the floor as I felt light headed".

Having had a stupendous 2016, where he finished 3rd in the Ballon d'Or rankings, Griezmann had a slightly subdued 2017 by his own high standards. If nothing happens in this moment Mo is back. Nobody told me: "'No way'". He netted a dozen goals in 20 appearances this season before the transfer.

But Klopp insisted that the No.10's attitude showed that was not possible. Hence, the thesis that he is somewhat a replacement for veteran playmaker Andres Iniesta is quite plausible now. He needs time for proper training of course. I am the type of person who relishes the chance to stand up and perform under pressure, I have had to do that my whole career.
