Klopp roars sensational statement to Barcelona re: Coutinho

GFX Possible Liverpool XI v Palace

Liverpool have reportedly rejected a third bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho - believed to be in the region of £114million.

So, there is desperation and that is something both Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund will look to take advantage of, although doubts remain over whether the club from the English Premier League will sanction a move.

Liverpool may have been caught out by Coutinho handing in a transfer request, but even if such a move would hurt the club, sitting out once the transfer window closed would hurt the player more. "I've told them of course, but as a player - which I was too a few years ago - it is not easy".

Speaking to Spanish television station TV3, Segura said, "We are close to Coutinho and Dembele, we are discussing their conditions but we do not know when they will be sealed".

Guillem Balague has suggested that Barcelona general manager Pep Segura's comments regarding Philippe Coutinho may have been lost in translation.

'We can't forget that he is only 20 years old and nobody knows who's behind this action.

Klopp roars sensational statement to Barcelona re: Coutinho

When asked if Coutinho's absence was due to his back injury, Klopp replied: "I think so". I'm looking at Sanchez, and I know he's been to Barcelona but surely you go and get him?

Pic: ReutersLONDON: Crystal Palace are hoping their former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke will be able to exploit the Anfield club's perceived defensive weakness from set pieces in Saturday's Premier League game.

Klopp's best friend David Wagner is the manager at Huddersfield and the pair have spoken about last week's match, although Klopp said there was not a great deal of discussion about tactics.

Once seen as one club player for cross-town rivals Manchester United, Evans has been in decent form for West Brom who are obviously keen to keep him now the season has started.

"Sergio Aguero is another player that might be interested if he's not happy at Manchester City, but it comes back to being late in the window and that is the hard situation Liverpool find themselves in".
