  • Can'Coutinho is best I've seen

Jurgen Klopp needs to build a Liverpool defence worthy of Philippe Coutinho, Garth Crooks has claimed.

Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau has confirmed that the Catalan club will make another move for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho in January.

"We are prepared to sign Coutinho or other players but the proposal has to come from the technical staff".

Yet despite Grau's comments, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague remains doubtful that Barça will actually submit a bid for the Brazilian in January.

Barcelona may have to get closer to Liverpool's £183m valuation for a player Liverpool re-signed on a five-year deal in January 2017, but if they do the Premier League club will find it hard to say no again.

"We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer", he added. What we want is to have the most competitive squad possible.

The 0-5 Giants could be in a position to target Eli Manning's successor in the 2018 draft if they continue on this awful trend. Beckham went down on a pass that fell incomplete with about 4 minutes left in the game, the Giants up 22-20 at the time.

It was a summer of speculation surrounding Coutinho's future. The midfielder missed Liverpool's opening matches of the new season due to a reported back injury, only to score for Brazil when he joined up with the Selecao for worldwide duty.

Barcelona's advances for the 25-year-old were certainly warranted, with Coutinho scoring 14 goals and laying on nine assists in 36 games for the Reds last term.

But Dembele has endured a nightmare start to life at the Camp Nou.

Liverpool, however, strongly denied this version of events and insisted that their definitive stance that Coutinho would end the summer transfer window at Anfield had never changed.
