Klopp considering Suso bid to replace Philippe Coutinho

Negotiations with Firmino over an improved contract are yet to begin, but "will happen soon".

"Things like the Liverpool transfer can prey on a player's mind", acknowledged Leipzig's director of sport Ralf Rangnick.

Coutinho's £142million exit has caused the club to reevaluate their policy when it comes to their star players.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain denies talk that Philippe Coutinho is irreplaceable and that Liverpool will struggle hugely without the former Reds no.10.

The second most expensive transfer in football history, that of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool to Barcelona, nearly had a twist in the tale.

While Leipzig's owner's Red Bull are not short of cash, the club could be tempted to cash in to ensure they comply with UEFA's financial fair play regulations, while being able to reinvest the money into the squad.

Coutinho dazzled Anfield and the Premier League for five-years in a Liverpool shirt, but his £150 million move to Barcelona, a move he has called a "dream", is now complete. And they have shored up their suspect defence by paying an eye-watering £75 million ($102 million, 84 million euros) to Southampton for defender Virgil Van Dijk.

The Brazilian, so often used at the top of Liverpool's attack, has 16 goals to his name this season - second only to top scorer Mohamed Salah.

Many want him to face titleholder Conor McGregor, although the date of McGregor's impending return is unknown at this point. No one expected that it may also be a huge card in Russian Federation , but that just became way more of a possibility.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has shown considerable promise since joining, but the qualities that have impressed fans most have been the energy and dynamism of a midfielder, not the goals and assists of the attacker Liverpool need to replace Coutinho with.

The Brazilian directly contributed towards 20 goals in as many appearances, and his influence was nearly unrivalled in the squad.

Riyad Mahrez is supposedly one of the potential Coutinho replacements on Liverpool's radar.

Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now. Antonio Conte's men - as the odds suggest - ought to win, especially given their recent form at Stamford Bridge .

And the club reportedly do not believe the sale of vital players will become the norm under Klopp as it did for him when he was Dortmund manager.
