Liverpool urged to sign Verratti as Coutinho replacement

After the €160 million sale of the Brazil international, the Reds must look for a top quality replacement like the PSG star, says Christian Purslow

Liverpool have been urged to sign Marco Verratti to replace Philippe Coutinho by the club’s former director Christian Purslow.

The Reds confirmed the loss of their star player on Saturday as he brought an end to constant speculation by completing a €160 million move to Barcelona.

With 12 goals and eight assists to his name this season, Coutinho has played a key role in Liverpool’s campaign in the Premier League and Champions League, leaving the club with the difficult task of replacing him halfway through the season.

But ex-managing director Purslow says Jurgen Klopp’s side must push for a “brilliant” player to replace the Brazil international, pointing out Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Verratti as the star they need to maintain the quality of their squad.

“Go and buy Marco Verratti from PSG,” he said on Sky Sports.
