‘Class player’, ‘best replacement’ Twitter was lit up with Liverpool fans scouting Coutinho replacement

Riyad Mahrez

Liverpool seem set to lose Philippe Coutinho and while that won’t be going down well with a number of fans, the club seems to be on the hunt for replacements, with Thomas Lemar being one of the touted players. The Frenchman was one of Monaco’s best players last season but he has not been at his best this season and that is one reason why a number of fans are not sure about his success in England.

One player whose name has been doing the rounds regarding a move to a bigger club is Riyad Mahrez. The Leicester City forward has been in great form this season, even after a poor campaign last time around. The Algerian has scored 7 goals and 7 assists in the Premier League and could finally make the big switch, to Liverpool, at least that is what the fans hope.

Coutinho’s departure would be a major blow for us but Mahrez has shown he can perform well in the Premier League and he might just be the right player for us as we look to get another attacking spark for our side next season.

Twitter was lit up with a number of Liverpool fans asking us to sign Mahrez and here are just a few of them.

A massive Liverpool fan with a twisted sense of humour, guess that's what supporting the Reds does to you. Left behind the corporate world to set up The Kop Times
