4-3-3: This is Liverpool's Strongest XI after Coutinho's Exit

We are 50/50 on this one. The versatile Spaniard has made a total of 25 appearances for La Liga leaders Barcelona, who are currently nine points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

It is claimed that they could agree to pay an additional €15-20 million to the Bundesliga club in order to get a deal done this month.
