Liverpool reject Philippe Coutinho transfer request, say reports

Liverpool reject Philippe Coutinho transfer request, say reports

Liverpool have rejected Philippe Coutinho's request to leave the club. But, the Reds seem to be denying any such incident, and remain rigid on the fact that the Brazil worldwide would not be going anywhere this season.

But Coutinho, 25, is now trying to force through a move himself after emailing in an official transfer request.

Liverpool's owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) were left red-faced on Friday when reports emerged suggesting Coutinho had handed in a transfer request moments after they released a statement unequivocally outlining their intention not to sell him.

"I think I have said it already a few times, but maybe that's not 100 percent clear". "And that is the way it will go".

FSG's stern statement was quickly followed by a report from some leading media houses, chief among them Sky Sports, that Coutinho had officially asked to leave Liverpool.

Despite looking elsewhere, there is certainly unfinished business between Barcelona, Liverpool and Coutinho in this transfer window, and this afternoon's news will improve the likelihood of them securing the signature of their number one transfer target.

The family member added: "There are things that have happened, there is not the same bond".

He has missed training in the run up to the clash with a back injury, though is actually believed to be fully fit.

Klopp is thrilled the Brazilian will remain at Anfield and the German insists he maintains a healthy relationship with the Liverpool hierarchy.

Jurgen Klopp backed the owners' stance on Coutinho and the statement came as much needed relief for Liverpool fans as the Coutinho saga seemingly came to an end.

We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho. "I am responsible for the whole team, all these players and I need to focus on the players who are available".

Barca are expected to continue their pursuit of Coutinho, but Liverpool's refusal to negotiate has forced the Catalans to look elsewhere, with Eriksen reportedly on their radar.
