Barcelona are prepared to sell Philippe Coutinho this summer and want €100million, that’s according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.
As per the report, Philippe Coutinho is eager for a move to Manchester United as a summer move away from Camp Nou appears likelier than ever.
The Reds aren't mentioned at all and although I would understand completely if Klopp didn't make a move, Coutinho is just what is missing from the current Liverpool team.
If it's true the Brazilian is free to leave for just £85m, it would be a terrible mistake for Liverpool not to make an approach.
Liverpool very much need a midfielder who can find the back of the net as well as persistently put pressure on opposition defenders by attempting through balls in between central defenders and full backs.
If Klopp decides against making a move to sign Philippe Coutinho, he cannot afford to totally ignore signing a player of his type.
They have the money to spend and whatever the result of Liverpool's Premier and Champions League bids, reinforcement is needed.
