Chelsea make contact with Barcelona over Philippe Coutinho loan deal “So he has got a knack of doing that kind of thing, of being influential from that point of view. But you expect so much more from him.”I don’t see a happy player, I see a player that, not so much that he doesn’t know what to do, it’s perhaps that it doesn’t come natural to do the things that they are demanding of him, like getting himself between the full-back and the centre-back, run in-behind all the time, add depth to the team that way and penetration.”He does it for a while but eventually he just wants to be part of what’s happening.”So would they want to get rid of him?

Barcelona are no strangers to doing business with Jurgen Klopp’s side – the most recent case being with the transfer of Coutinho in January 2018. Since then, there has been talk of Blaugrana interest in both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, though nothing beyond conjecture.

Donny van de Beek of Ajax has been continuously linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid, following the Amsterdam club’s magnificent Champions League run last season.
