Philippe Coutinho might not be fit enough to play for Liverpool at the moment but the 25-year-old Brazilian is attracting attention from Real Madrid according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo (h/t Mirror).

The report claims that Los Galacticos have joined the race to sign our attacker and that they will battle Barcelona for his signature.

We all know that the Reds thwarted any attempt from Barcelona to sign Coutinho in the summer but the Catalan giants could return in the winter window.

Real too want to get some of the Coutinho action and the report claims that the reigning La Liga champions would be willing to spend big but only in the summer window and not in January.

Things are set to become complicated as Paris Saint-Germain are also tracking Coutinho. The French giants could be a tantalising prospect given that Coutinho’s very good friend Neymar has been doing well at the club this season.

A Tough Decision For Liverpool To Make

Barcelona might have to bid more than €150m for Coutinho in the summer and even though the Brazilian prefers a move to the Catalan side, the chips are in Liverpool’s favour when it comes to selling their star. The Brazilian did submit a transfer request in the summer window but we did not pay heed to that and the fact that Coutinho does not have a release clause suggests we can ask for whatever amount we want for the 25-year-old.

It will be tough to replace Coutinho but with the right investment in the squad, we might be able to bring in a number of quality defensive players that can plug the gaps in our team.

Of course, we would be looking to get someone who can do a similar job to Coutinho but for now, we have to ensure that Coutinho does his job well so that we get back on track in the Premier League.

We are 6th in the table and Coutinho is not expected to play against West Ham United. It will be an interesting time for us when Coutinho does return and if he finds his magic in front of the goal, we could be in for a frantic finish come the end of the season.

Blow for Liverpool as Chelsea look set to seal £60million deal for Bundesliga star

Christian Pulisic

Chelsea are set to win the race for Borussia Dortmund sensation Christian Pulisic, according to reports from the Daily Mail (h/t Metro).

The 20-year-old American has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks, but the report claims the winger wants to join Chelsea.

The report adds that Jurgen Klopp has been trying to sign Pulisic for a number of years, but Chelsea could announce a summer deal for the American in the coming month.

The American has been one of the most exciting players in the Bundesliga for a couple of years, and losing him to Chelsea would be a huge blow.

Christian Pulisic

The report adds that the American wants to leave in the summer and that Dortmund want to cash in on the player. The fee for the youngster has not been decided between Chelsea and the Bundesliga side, but the report claims it is around £60million.

Pulisic has somewhat been overshadowed by the form of Jadon Sancho as the English youngster has helped Dortmund to an unbeaten start in the Bundesliga.

The youngster is used more as a substitute these days in the Bundesliga by Dortmund and a fresh challenge will do him some good.

“This one is definitely the answer” – Former Tottenham boss claims this Liverpool star is the signing of the season

Alisson Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood shared his opinion on who the best signing has been in the Premier League this season.

The Englishman went for a goalkeeper and named Alisson while discussing the signings with Robbie Savage on BT Sport (h/t Express):

“They needed to fix a problem they had, and a goalkeeper was obviously a problem for Liverpool.

“They’ve tried to sign goalkeepers in the past and it hasn’t been the answer – this one is definitely the answer.

“He’s outstanding on his feet, he sets the moves off very quickly but most importantly, he keeps the ball out the net. He makes big saves at the right time.

“He has quiet periods in games then he makes a huge save – and that is, for me, a tell-tale sign of a world class goalie.”

Alisson

Alisson has made several top quality saves since joining Liverpool. The one against Eden Hazard vs Chelsea, the point-blank save off Andre Gomes in the Merseyside derby and his latest was the incredible last-minute save in the Napoli tie.

Sherwood talked up that save in the Champions League and claimed it was Peter Schmeichel-esque. The Englishman also claimed that the Brazilian would have saved the Demba Ba goal during that incredible 2013-14 season where we missed the title.

“You can’t win zero without a good goalkeeper. Right now, Liverpool, they haven’t got the best but they’re right up there with the top three keepers in the Premier League.”

The former AS Roma keeper has conceded just 7 goals from 17 Premier League games, and it will be interesting to see if he can keep more clean sheets in the remainder of the campaign.

“Dont know where he goes from here now” – Some Liverpool fans concerned about youngster returning from loan deal

Ovie Ejaria and Jurgen Klopp

Ovie Ejaria is set to return to Liverpool and end his loan spell with Rangers early. The club released a statement regarding the 21-year-old who scored two goals in 28 games for Steven Gerrard’s side. The release added this was the best move for all involved.

“However, following discussions between the two clubs, as well as Ejaria and his family, it has been determined an early return to the Reds is in the best interests of all parties concerned.”

The release thanked the Scottish giants for helping the 21-year-old Englishman, and it will be interesting to see what the next step for the youngster would be.

Ejaria is one of the highly rated players in our youth system but for some reason, things just did not work out for him at Rangers.

We have another star on loan at Rangers in Ryan Kent, and the winger has been doing pretty well at the club. Many Liverpool fans chipped in with their thoughts regarding the return of Ejaria, and here are some reactions from Twitter.
