Philippe Coutinho reportedly hands in transfer request at Liverpool after Barcelona bids

Liverpool's owners Fenway Sports Group have made it clear that Brazilian Philippe Coutinho will not be sold before the close of the summer transfer window.

The failure to capture Naby Keita from Red Bull Leipzig after weeks of speculation and multiple rejected bids is a stark mirror image of Liverpool's dismissal of Barcelona. Liverpool could be strong, but then they could end up with a grumpy player that doesn't really want to commit for them.

Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is keen to get Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge back on the pitch following his latest injury setback, while Danny Ings is also closing in on a return to fitness.

Coutinho has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona this summer as the Catalan club search for a replacement for Neymar, with some reports in Spain even claiming that a deal was done.

German boss Klopp backed up the club's owners remarks in his pre-Watford press conference. What we do we do to strengthen the club for our supporters'.

Sources told ESPN FC on Wednesday that Liverpool had rejected a second bid from Barca worth up to €100 million.

Much the same happened to Liverpool nearly exactly four years ago when Arsenal bid for Suarez, who said he wished to go.

Her son responded by forwarding a letter the governor of Guam had sent out, reassuring there was no imminent threat. Guam's Homeland Security Adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defenses are in place for such threats.

Coutinho is understood to have emailed Liverpool director Michael Edwards after training today expressing his desire to leave the club.

That's what they did with Suarez when he seemed keen to join Arsenal and the extra season Liverpool had from him was sensational.

This time, Liverpool appear determined to stem the talent drain.

However, Klopp admitted: "I can't keep players happy".

However, former Chelsea star Lampard does not believe that the Reds are likely to finish in the Premier League's top four this time around.

Instead, they have been reminded that their status is diminished. He's ready to go, has no problem with injuries and will play with the Under-23s tonight.
