EPL: Mahrez not right player to replace Coutinho at Liverpool - Michel Owen

However, once the summer transfer window closed, Coutinho returned to action and was in excellent form for Liverpool, scoring 12 goals, and registering eight assists, in 19 appearances between September and December.

"Hopefully, he is happy where he is - after all, he only arrived last summer".

"But it was not possible to do it again", Klopp said. We can't reveal the figures but it is an important amount'.

Liverpool are considering their transfer options following the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona and have been linked with a string of attackers. Mo Salah has obviously been incredible alongside Mane and Firmino and they've got a huge sum of money that they can utilise to strengthen if they deem it necessary.

"I know Philippe from when we brought him [on loan] from Inter [Milan] to Espanyol [in 2012]". I am sure the Brazilian would have recovered from his disappointment for four more months It was more risky to keep him in August than now. "I'm really looking forward to the game, to be honest!"

Inter are closing in on deals for former Chelsea midfielder Ramires and Barcelona star Rafinha, says Corriere dello Sport. We played against each other a couple of times and he's a fantastic player.

"My phone has been hopping with messages about it, even from people I don't know", Kevin told the Press Association.

Andrés Iniesta spoke to El Partidazo COPE after Barcelona's victory over Celta Vigo on Thursday night and remains confident that regardless of who Barcelona sign, he plans on leading Barca's midfield for the foreseeable future. He was five years here and was here since I came in. I have played in La Liga before, so hopefully I will adapt quickly'. I have my own objectives.

In Lallana and Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp has players who will offer less in attack than Coutinho but will work harder and allow Liverpool to retain a better defensive shape.

Following the exit of superstar Coutinho, Liverpool are now on the lookout for a playmaker to replace the Brazilian but Oxlade-Chamberlain has stated that he is looking forward to fill the departed Barcelona man's boots.

It was his dream as everyone knows and he left Liverpool for only club and it was Barcelona and we have to accept that.

"At Arsenal, it was all too easy for him".

The Dutchman wore No 14 for Ajax and Holland and would have done so for Barcelona had he not played in an era when shirts were numbered 1-11 in Spain.

The Irishman also claims to have the answers when it comes to reinvesting Coutinho's £142 million transfer fee.

'From the beginning I was clear about my wishes. "I am in Paris, even though I do not have enough playing time".
