European Giants Could Miss Paulo Dybala Because Of Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho's transfer surpasses the previous club record set by Dembele, whose fee was an initial 105 million euros ($126 million) that could eventually rise to 147 million euros ($176 million) depending on his success.

Reds fans are still licking their wounds after Philippe Coutinho's high-profile transfer to Barcelona was finalised this week.

Yet that strident tone changed ahead of the latest transfer window and, in his first public comment since Coutinho's sale, Klopp made clear that Liverpool felt they had no choice but to negotiate the move.

"This was his dream. Now one has left and it's not too cool but it's not a real problem".

"By the way, final decision, if I would have said "no way", the club would have said "OK, let's try". It could have been very hard if we had done what we could have done and said: "There's your contract and you have to stay here", and used him as a player in the second half of the season. They tried. We want to do something quite similar. We have open eyes through this transfer window but we will not make insane things.

"He was one of the best players we had in the team but as a person he was maybe even the best".

"A quality player like Phil, every team will miss a player like that if they leave", Gini said.

"We lost plenty of players at Dortmund". "You always need to react". It is all about the atmosphere in the club.

Liverpool FC have already brought in defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton this month but it remains to be seen whether they will make any more signings or not.

Able to operate down both flanks in the 4-3-3 system Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sometimes prefers, as well as being able to function as a central playmaker, Mahrez has added increased versatility to his arsenal.

Klopp admitted that the team adopted "kind of a solution" in giving the ball to Coutinho and expecting him to produce a moment of quality and create a chance, stating that it can make Liverpool "more unpredictable" without that.

'I'd be surprised if they replaced him [Coutinho] in this window, ' Shearer told bookmaker Coral.

"I like Phil, fantastic player, behaviour great". I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him but we only have to carry on.

The reverse fixture went badly for Liverpool at the Etihad in September but they could have been two up in the first 20 minutes of that game and had Sadio Mane sent-off before City cut loose and beat them 5-0. The management blocked his move and Jurgen Klopp urged him to serve for at least this campaign as he constructed his side around the Brazilian.
