Coutinho in heartfelt message to Liverpool 'legend' Gerrard

The versatile midfielder's exploits were enough to earn him a move to Liverpool, but on the condition that he waited until the end of this season.

Liverpool's deal to sign highly-rated RB Leipzig midfielder Keita was seen as a real coup by many, even if Reds fans were initially set to have wait nearly a year to see him in action at Anfield.

Michael Edwards, Liverpool's sporting director, will hold discussions with his opposite number Ralf Rangnick about the possibility of bringing forward Keita's arrival.

City hasn't triumphed at Anfield since Nicolas Anelka grabbed an injury-time victor against his former club in 2003, making Liverpool its hardest away trip in the Premier League.

Philippe Coutinho has responded to Mohamed Salah's farewell message on Instagram, following his £142m switch to Barcelona.

He is coming to Merseyside to play in the Champions League - it would be criminal if he didn't join until the summer, and Liverpool missed out on it.

Shortly after putting pen to paper for Spanish football giants FC Barcelona, Philippe Coutinho used his Instagram page to post a farewell message to Liverpool and their supporters.

"It is our job to keep the wheels moving and momentum going".

RB Leipzig have a price in mind if Liverpool want Naby Keita in the winter transfer window, despite the club's public assertions.

Throughout their article, Bild reiterate that Keita can go for an extra €20m, with one line saying: 'BILD knows: If the English offer €20m more, in total €95m, Leipzig agrees to a change!' It would take the pressure off their transfer business in the rest of this window.

Gomez is the latest in this list and the Argentine, who has been in fine form for Atalanta this season, would be open to a move to Anfield.

Lemar turned down a £90m move to Arsenal on deadline day in August, and Monaco are set to begin the bidding for the 22-year-old's services at that figure.
