Philippe Coutinho Is Not Injured?
Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has not featured for Liverpool this season.
He submitted a transfer request almost the same time the club claimed he will miss the start of the season due to a back injury.
The playmaker is now traning with Brazil and confident Barcelona can reach an agreement with Liverpool during the international break before the transfer window closes.
Klopp have stated very strongly that the Brazilian will not be sold and will be accepted back into the squad 100% with open arms.
Yesterday, a source reported that Liverpool have submitted bid to Monaco for Thomas Lemar but their bid got rejected TWICE.
Lemar was also a target for Arsenal but Monaco have rejected their bid multiple times as well.
It’s very sudden that Liverpool is bidding for a wide player which means they could finally agree to let Coutinho move to Barcelona and is looking for replacement as soon as possible.
Ousmane Dembele has completed his move to Barcelona yesteday and Coutinho move looks to be closer but we believe the deal could not be reach.
If Barcelona is confident in landing Coutinho, they would have spared the No.11 for the Brazilian instead of giving it to Dembele.
Maybe Barcelona does not have 100% chance in capturing the Liverpool midfielder.
Hopefully in the next 48 hours, his future will be made clear.
