Soccer – Klopp coy on Coutinho exit talk

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to keep his squad together and has no intention of selling Philippe Coutinho this summer. The 25-year-old Brazilian is reportedly wanted by Barcelona who see him as a successor to Andres Iniesta at Camp Nou. When asked about Barca's interest in Coutinho, Klopp said: "I have nothing to say about this. Yes [Coutinho is not for sale]. He's still young and can still improve a lot. "We want to make the next step together and for that we need to stay together." Since moving to Anfield in January 2013, Coutinho has scored 34 Premier League goals in 138 appearances for the Reds. Liverpool can be backed at 12/1 with bet365 to beat Watford 3-0 on the opening weekend of the season, while they are 12/1 to win the Premier League title in 2017/18.
