Liverpool confirms 'no offers will be considered' for Coutinho

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp in recent days since Neymar sealed his record-breaking move from Barcelona to Paris-Saint Germain.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has repeatedly said the club will not be selling the 25-year-old Coutinho, who has become a key player for the Premier League team and Brazil in recent years.

However, confusion reigned on Friday morning when, after Liverpool released a statement announcing that Coutinho will stay in Merseyside this summer, reports claimed the player himself has handed in a transfer request.

"We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho", FSG said.

Jurgen Klopp has described Liverpool as being "in a good shape" ahead of the new season - while keeping quiet about Philippe Coutinho's future. For me the bigger issue is that he is unable to play.

But Coutinho will be missing from the Watford match with a back problem that could also rule him out of the first leg of the Champions League play-off away to German club Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

"We have a good team, we're happy, and I think we can do even better than a year ago ". A few clunkers at "home" next season could force Spurs off the rails.

Many Liverpool fans are anxious their club have done relatively little in the transfer market, signing only three players, and so far failing to land their two most significant targets - RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool ruined plans to present Philippe Coutinho as a Barcelona player today, according to El Periodico.

"He's a doubt for Tuesday unfortunately", the the Liverpool boss said during his press conference on Friday.

"They were made, but Luan remains as a Gremio player at the moment".

That's thanks to Barcelona's transfer intentions, and the possibility of Liverpool or Dortmund, or perhaps both, finding an extra €100m+ in their accounts pretty soon. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. So what they pay in the end doesn't matter.
