Out of Barcelona’s plans, Coutinho seems set to be on the move again, and the Premier League has been touted most frequently as the next destination. An emotional return to Liv...

Date published: Monday 27th July 2020 8:56 Liverpool face the imminent prospect of making a big decision over the future of Gini Wijnaldum, according to a prominent journalist.
