Liverpool deny reports of Philippe Coutinho transfer request

Even if Barcelona are tempted to return with a bid in excess of £100million, Liverpool have made it clear that they will give the same response and they are building their team around Coutinho, who signed a five-year deal in January.

The request was swiftly rejected by Liverpool, who released a statement insisting he is not for sale.

Liverpool have rejected a second bid from Barcelona for influential Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho worth £90.3 million, British media claimed Wednesday.

It's easy to be cynical and focus on the "summer window" part of the sentence. "You can read it and there is nothing else to say about it".

If the answer is no you need to take a long, hard look at yourself. Liverpool fan's opinion of Fenway Sports Group - the club's American ownership group - is waning. Some three decades on, both sides are now looking to create new legacies. The quality promised has not been delivered. It seems Salah has settled so fast after leaving AS Roma, as he impressively displayed his skills and composure with the ball during the pre-season.

For many on Merseyside, the scenario is eerily familiar, with Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Xabi Alonso, Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling all leaving when the club hoped they would stay.

The fact that Barcelona are lurking to sign Coutinho is yet another headache. Everton have started the process that will see them leave Goodison Park after 125 years as they plan to build a new £300m-plus ground at Liverpool's Bramley Moore Dock.

"We knew there would be a qualification game and now it's coming up". Moreno is currently higher in the pecking order.

The Reds are 5/9 to win at Vicarage Road. But a perception that they're not prepared to go large in the transfer market has lost some goodwill. Some of the Catalan hierarchy also feel Eriksen could be more suited to their team due to his link-up play.

However, as a well a significant test for Hughes, who had been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham and Fulham among others while impressing at Derby, the occasion could prove nostalgic.

Explaining his selections, Gerrard said he expects Jurgen Klopp's men to be a force, next season.

Liverpool will kick start their new Premier League campaign on Saturday against Watford.

Klopp will face a difficult decision when naming his squad for the weekend as a number of other players will be sidelined with injury including Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne out.
