Coutinho hands in transfer request with Barcelona circling

Philippe Coutinho plays for Liverpool versus Hertha Berlin in pre season

Asked if he had to take special measures to keep Coutinho happy, Klopp said: "I can't always keep people or players happy".

'It's hard now as he doesn't want to be there - Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world but he doesn't want to be there.

Paris Saint-Germain paid a world-record €222million to meet the Brazil forward's release clause last week, a move Rivaldo hopes will ultimately improve his old club's spirit and resolve.

"From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go or a price that we are ready to give in".

For now, Can will be part of Klopp's Liverpool squad when it travels to Hertfordshire on Saturday to face Watford in the team's opening game of the Premier League season.

"But the stuff about not getting on with Klopp, these stories getting fed out, that's where I think that crosses the line".

"We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho", read the statement on Liverpool's website on Friday morning.

Philippe Coutinho has formally asked to leave Liverpool this lunchtime, as the player looks to secure a move to Barcelona. "I have nothing to say about this".

Following what was a rather topsy-turvy beginning to the morning in which it wasn't clear if Coutinho had submitted a transfer request or not, Liverpool's Spanish Twitter account appeared to poke fun at Barca with a amusing post.

Already questionable for Liverpool's Champions League first leg playoff match at Hoffenheim on Tuesday due to the aforementioned back injury, Coutinho's status at the Premier League club beyond that point may be up in the air.

The club are said to be saddened by the player's actions after he signed a new five-year deal in January worth £150,000 a week, committing himself to the club and conducting himself professionally. "All the rest is just between me and all the boys, not just Phil".

It is no wonder that Liverpool want "The Little Magician" to remain with the club as has really flourished at Merseyside.
