Replace Coutinho? 83% of Liverpool fans want Klopp to sign 'wonderful' €32m Brazilian maestro

Over the last few months, Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for 'wonderful' Paris St. German star Lucas Moura, but what do Liverpool fans think about the possibiity of signing the €32m-rated Brazilian?

In December, multiple reports claimed that Liverpool had 'made contact' with PSG to discuss the signing Moura, who allegedly wants to play for Klopp.

A few months later, the Reds reportedly scouts to watch Moura during PSG's 2-1 Champions League victory over Chelsea.

Moura's agent then confirmed that the Brazilian is having a tough time at PSG:

"He [Moura] loves PSG, but he's had problems. He has not played that much, and he's unhappy about that. He often complains"

Last week, I conducted a poll asking fans whether Liverpool should pursue Moura. The results are emphatic:

PSG are currently linked with a move for Philippe Coutinho, and it's not beyond the realm of possibility that the French club is exploring the possibility of replacing Moura with his Liverpool compatriot. If Moura comes the other way, there are clear positives to having him at Anfield:

* Plays for one of Europe's biggest clubs, so he's experienced the pressure that comes with relentless expectation.

* Plays alongside the likes of Ibrahimovic, Silva, Motta, Pastore, Veratti, and Cavani, and that experience with elite players should (in theory) help him hit the ground running in England.

* Only 23, so with the right guidance/coaching, he can improve, and his best years are (or should be) ahead of him.

It'll also make refreshing change to see Liverpool sign a player from one of Europe's top clubs and not from a mid-table (or worse) Prem/Bundesliga club.

As noted above, Moura allegedly wants to play for Klopp, but realistically, without Champions League football, the Reds have little chance of sealing this deal.

Theoretically, is Moura a viable replacement for Coutinho?
