Liverpool owners release succinct statement on future of Philippe Coutinho

Southampton star Virgil van Dijk

The only other transfer business to the date has been the free agent addition of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, who has looked a shrewd signing so far during the pre-season.

Liverpool will face Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League this weekend. The quality promised has not been delivered.

Barcelona have also had a bid rejected for Borussia Dortmund's 20-year-old forward Ousmane Dembele since they sold Brazil forward Neymar to Paris St-Germain for a world record £200m last week.

"We will speak in the next few weeks and months and see what happens".

At the end of the day, the club has a great manager in place here and they need to back him because we do not want him questioning the club's ambition.

A statement on their website said:"We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho". The Egypt global has already shown signs that he is gelling well with Liverpool's predatory forwards from last season, and has managed to push to the left wing Sadio Mane whose duties at last January's Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal and injury over the latter half of the season contributed to Liverpool's inability to maintain their push for the title.

But even with Liverpool ownership saying that Coutinho will not be leaving, one has to wonder if that would change should Barcelona's offer reach a certain number. "FSG statement still holds".

Ings wears his heart on his sleeve - I like that about him - but this season is make-or-break for him and I think Klopp will be looking to offload either Divock Origi or Ings next summer.

The Hornets will push throughout the whole match, but the quality players Liverpool have should prove to be too good.

The Reds are able to still add one more player to their squad list if they so choose to as long as it is confirmed by midnight the night before the game.

However, by lunch time on the eve of the club's season opener at Watford, they were anticipating his request with some media outlets reporting he had already sent it through.
