`Liverpool news LIVE updates: Alexis Sanchez claim, Lemar blow, Coutinho replacement

06:35: Liverpool will NOT sign AC Milan ace Suso to replace former talisman Philippe Coutinho.That’s the verdict of ex-footballer and ESPN FC pundit Alejandro Moreno.

“No, no no [it won’t happen],” he said.

“He said he doesn’t want to go, so I don’t know where the rumours are coming from.

“I would tell you that he’s fine in Milan, I think he wants to stay there, he’s playing well there.

“His last experience at Liverpool was not all that positive.”

Alexis Sanchez claim

05:45: Liverpool played a huge part in Manchester United making a move for Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez, according to Phil Neville.

“I think it’s a sensational deal for Manchester United,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I would have thought maybe a month ago Alexis Sanchez wouldn’t have come on the radar.

“All of a sudden, every now and again there comes a signing that you have to make, or if he’s available you have to try and make.

“And I think Sanchez, because I think of the form of Liverpool in particular, I think it’s maybe hurried up the need for someone to come in and not secure United’s second place but actually give them a massive, massive boost.

“I think United will finish in the top four and in second place but the form of Liverpool must be a worry because they’re playing unbelievable at this moment in time.”
