There’s One Name on Liverpool Fans’ Lips as Their Ideal Coutinho Replacement Should He Leave

With reports surfacing that Philippe Coutinho has submitted a transfer request ahead of a big money move to Barcelona, speculation has been rife about a potential replacement for the Brazilian.

But as the Anfield hierarchy scramble to find a potential last minute replacement, it seems Liverpool have already decided on their preferred option, with PSG’s dynamic winger Julian Draxler the name on everyone’s lips, as reported by ​Sport Bible.

The former Wolsburg player joined Les Parisiens in a £40m deal in January, but the arrival of world record signing Neymar Jr. has put his future as well as that of Lucas Moura in doubt.

The 23-year-old had a mixed season at Parc des Princes netting just 4 times as PSG finished as runners-up to champions Monaco.

The Germany international has also been linked with Barcelona, who are drawing up alternatives should the Countinho deal fall through.

Speculation about a summer departure for Draxler continues to persist, after the youngster wasn’t named in the squad for PSG’s 3-0 win over Guingamp this weekend.

It’s fair to say Liverpool fans aren’t in any doubts about his quality…
