The winter window is just a few weeks away and that only means one thing for Liverpool fans and the Spanish media – speculate about the future of Philippe Coutinho.

The 25-year-old was a summer target for Barcelona but we dug our heels in and ensured the Brazilian did not leave us, even after him submitting a transfer request. But a new report now suggests that Coutinho will be joining Barcelona and that we want a player in exchange for the attacking midfielder.

The report from Don Balon claims that any deal for the attacking midfielder should include Sergi Roberto. This is not the first time that the Spaniard has been named as the player that Liverpool want in exchange for Coutinho but this time there might be more than just the odd rumour from Spain coming in.

There is no doubt that Coutinho will be one player that will be looking to leave Liverpool in the summer, especially if he has a good World Cup with Brazil. The former Inter Milan man has not been at his best for us this campaign but a move to the Catalan giants might just get him playing better again.

Coutinho should not be allowed to leave on the cheap and if it was up to us, we would ensure that we get as much money as we can and not bring in any player who we don’t need. While Sergi Roberto is one of the most versatile players at Barcelona, thanks to his ability to play as a wing-back, midfielder and as a winger, what we really need is a quality central defender.

Selling Coutinho would be a major blow to us but it seems like we are now planning to focus more on the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who have been our stars this season.

If we are to grow and get better, we have to keep our best players but for that, we have to win trophies, something that seems difficult given our situation.

We still are in the Champions League and should make it to the next round as long as we get a point against Spartak Moscow at Anfield. Also, we are yet to play in the FA Cup but the league is what would keep Coutinho at Anfield, and that is a ship that has already sailed.

Harry Wilson

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
