No price for Coutinho - Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says there is no price at which they would sell Philippe Coutinho as he would not be able to replace him.

Barcelona have made a second bid for the Reds star of £90m as they look to replace Neymar who went to PSG but Klopp says it is not just the money which prevents any move.

He believes the timing of any move would not give him enough opportunity to replace him in the side, Coutinho joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5million in 2013 and signed a new five-year deal in January, but despite struggling with an ankle injury last season, he still scored 14 goals and remains a key part of Klopp's squad for the campaign ahead.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go or a price that we are ready to give in," he told Sky Germany.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.

“Today no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.

“Also you have to ask, if you have the time to react. But just because of one request of one club, we don’t have to think about that. We are not in that situation."
