The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.

While the statement is short, it certainly gets its point across.

If one wants to read into it a bit more, it’s worth noting that the statement is about this transfer window and makes no mention of Coutinho’s future past this season.

Liverpool’s campaign begins on Saturday with an away trip to Watford. Given the statement, Coutinho is expected to be involved at Vicarage Road.
