Liverpool already found Coutinho replacement?

Liverpool have reportedly earmarked West Ham star Manuel Lanzini as their No1 choice to replace Philippe Coutinho.

ESPN Brazil claim the Reds have been preparing for Coutinho’s exit – and Lanzini is the man they want to bring on. The 24-year-old was a shining light amid a tough year under Slaven Bilic last term, scoring eight goals from 39 games.

The Hammers are unlikely to let him go on the cheap but, with Barcelona set to sign Coutinho for £90million, they could drive a hard bargain.
