Have Liverpool finally conceded defeat in their bid to hold on to Philippe Coutinho? According to recent reports, indeed they have. The Reds are willing to accept an offer of €145m for the Brazilian, with a January transfer now looking likely.
But Jurgen Klopp poured cold water on the reports out of Spain on Friday, saying: “Named a price? Interesting,” when asked about a move for Coutinho. “There is absolutely nothing to say about this. Of course, Phil is still essential for us.”
