Liverpool are yet again being linked with a move for Philippe Coutinho this summer, with rumours going as far as to state the Brazilian has practically begged Jurgen Klopp for a return.

Supporters are well, and truly, split over whether or not the Barcelona star should even be considered, but there is no doubting he’s still a world-class talent.

Liverpool have reportedly baulked at Timo Werner’s £49million release clause, and many believe that means the Reds will have a quiet summer.
