Pundit names the £12m man who can replace Coutinho at Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has already found his replacement for Philippe Coutinho, according to one former Liverpool man.

Reports have suggested that the Reds are still searching for a replacement for Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in a £142million deal in January.

However, Neil Mellor believes that Xherdan Shaqiri – a £12million summer buy from Stoke – can fill the void left by the Brazilian’s departure.

The Swiss international was in fine form on Wednesday night as Liverpool beat Red Star Belgrade 4-0 at Anfield, and Mellor heaped praise on him for his performances so far.

“I really like Shaqiri. What a bargain he seems like when you think what Liverpool bought him for in the summer from Stoke,” Mellor told Love Sport Radio.
