Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested that keeping Philippe Coutinho at the club this summer is more important than any incoming activity.
Barcelona and Paris-Saint Germain have reportedly shown interest in signing the Brazil International and are willing to spend big to get the midfielder’s signature.
Klopp Jurgen is unwilling to sell his star player but is more focused on improving his squad by signing new player within the next five weeks.
“Not with only Phil, but it’s a good thing to talk about in the transfer window because the world thinks improving is only about bringing in new players,” he told reporters. “Nobody thinks that the players we already have will make the next step, which is also a nice idea.
“We use the transfer window, of course, because it gives us an opportunity, but the main thing I think about is how we can make the next step with the players we had last season.
“The good news is we didn’t lose – and we will not lose – a player we want to keep this summer. That’s the best news actually and then we’ll see who can bring into the squad. I expect a lot of progress from the players based on their experiences from the last years.”
