Message to Klopp: 58% of fans want Liverpool to sign 'amazing' £70m attacker on long-term deal

Paris St. Germain and Barcelona are once again being linked with a big-money move for 'amazing' Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho, but if a giant offer comes in, should Klopp sell?

According to The Mirror:

"Liverpool are ready to offer Philippe Coutinho a new contract to fend off interest from Barcelona".

Last season, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed that Liverpool are willing to sell Coutinho for '£70m', but according to Reds fans, that's not enough.

Last week, I conducted a poll asking fans if Liverpool should accept a £70m offer for Coutinho, or sign him up for a long-term contract. The results:

* 58% of participating fans voted NO to selling the Brazilian.

I voted YES to selling. Coutinho is an exciting player, but he's never been consistent enough over an entire season, and his goals/assist stats are regularly much lower than similar top players in his position.

That said, Coutinho has started this season in explosive fashion, so perhaps he's now moving into a more prolific stage of his Liverpool career.

If that proves to be the case, then Klopp should obviously keep him, but I can't help feeling that there's an air of inevitability about Coutinho's eventual exit (just as there was with Luis Suarez).

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
