My dream was always to play for Barcelona, admits Philippe Coutinho

Virgil Van Dijk set to leave Celtic in summer transfer window

Liverpool boss says Jurgen Klopp says they will not make insane things happen in the transfer window as they chase a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

However, having played under Simeone, Griezmann will definitely be an ideal signing for Klopp's style of play and Liverpool should go all out int heir attempts to sign the Atletico Madrid striker. "We came out to set the tempo of the game against a team that want a lot of the ball".

"We have open eyes through this transfer window but we will not make insane things". If anybody would say afterwards it's because we didn't fight enough, they will never know 100 per cent all the information.

"We don't have to think about unpredictability immediately against Manchester City, we have to think about work, but in general there is always opportunity in a situation like this", said an optimistic Klopp.

"In the end, if you lose five or six players then obviously it can be a little different if you cannot replace them, but we will bring in other players, that's for sure", he said.

It would also give Klopp the option of deploying him behind Roberto Firmino in a 4-2-3-1 system, directly filling the gaping hole Coutinho has left and catering for the development of a suitable ecosystem for fellow attackers Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah to thrive, occupying the wide roles. "He did fantastic in the first-half of the season after what happened in the summer". If you don't miss a person then there would have been something wrong when you were together. Really, it is a normal, normal thing and we have only to make the best of it.

Keita could also be an alternative to fill the void left by Coutinho amid suggestions that Liverpool are trying to convince Leipzig to part ways with the Guinea worldwide six months ahead of his expected arrival.

"It is actually scary as look at the actual amount of goals he scores, but also look at the amount of goals he missed - one versus one, not easy goals at the end of the day, because they are not easy". "If we do it in this window, I don't know", he explained.

"Where the Coutinho departure differs is Liverpool have a more balanced squad now than in 2009, 2011 and 2014", added Carragher.

Though City has won 19 of its last 20 Premier League matches, Liverpool has not lost in the last 15 meetings at Anfield against the Blues.

'We don't have to replace him.

"I said at the beginning of the season he can be the new Coutinho - obviously I did not know that Coutinho was going to leave".
