Liverpool Squad Sympathise With Wantaway Midfielder Philippe Coutinho Following Transfer Request

Mohamed Salah Liverpool Barcelona plans to sign Coutinho rocked by Liverpool rejection

Barca believe Coutinho can step in for Neymar alongside Lionel Messi and former Liverpool favourite Suarez in a star-studded front three.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has gone on record a number of times emphasising the player is not for sale.

Liverpool are heading into the brand new Premier League campaign with star player Philippe Coutinho's future still hanging in the balance.

The comments come following Coutinho's move to secure a transfer to Barcelona. The Brazilian reportedly turned up at Liverpool's training ground as scheduled today for treatment on his back injury, and despite the fact that the club issued a statement yesterday saying that all offers for Coutinho would be rejected.

It was furthered with FSG's definitive position that "no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool football club when the summer window closes".

The Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, and club officials are seething over a move that has overshadowed the start of their season at Watford. It was pretty clear what the club said about it.

The statement said: "Philippe has tried very hard to find an amicable solution to this situation but to no avail".

Nemanja Matic confident ahead of West Ham United clash
If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid. He was good in some games, inexperienced in others. "I think we played everything so we don't lose this game".

A win for Liverpool in their Premier League debut would be a much-needed confidence booster and help settle the starting line-up ahead of the upcoming (and crucial) Champions League clash against Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

Sportskeeda will keep you updated with what transpires so watch this space.

"I was not playing at Chelsea so I took the decision to go somewhere else".

Barcelona can discuss personal terms with Coutinho, but in the end that will not matter because they will still have to convince Liverpool to part ways with their best player.

However, it is understood from a source close to the player that Coutinho is unhappy with the way Liverpool have handled the negotiations.

"Last time it was very tough, we won 1-0 and I remember in the last minute they hit the crossbar and it was almost heartbreak for me!"
