Liverpool lign up Lorenzo Insigne as Philippe Coutinho replacement

West Ham Player Ratings v Man Utd

The report states that is "no guarantee" Coutinho returns to play for Liverpool, after the midfielder "informed coach Jürgen Klopp of his decision to move to Barcelona".

Barca, who sold Neymar to Paris St Germain last week for a world-record £200.6m, made their offer on Wednesday having already had a £72m bid for Coutinho turned down in July.

"The board want him to stay, this is not a situation where Liverpool need money or to cash in", Liverpool great Steven Gerrard, the club under-18 coach, said this week about the Coutinho situation. However, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp says it is too close to the season and the end of the transfer window to sell. I just work with the him, then I must accept it.

"I can not say a lot about it", Klopp said on the subject of Coutinho.

"It's always been his dream to play for Barcelona, and the kid is panicking thinking he will not get his move if he doesn't go now". "Of course we knew it before but after this game we have a lot of things to do", Klopp added. Insigne looks like the flawless Klopp type of player and he could be ideal for the pace and physicality of the Premier League. It's the first game of the season and we're going to try to work hard for the next games. So how it change something for me?

"I think Jurgen Klopp's got it under control, I think FSG have got it under control, and they're the key", he explained.
