Liverpool eye surprise £40m playmaker move to fill Coutinho void



Liverpool have reportedly turned their attentions to a West Ham playmaker in their search to replace Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho completed a British record move to Barcelona earlier in the month, ending months of speculation surrounding his future.
Now, Liverpool are reportedly out to replace the Brazil international using their £142million windfall, with Monaco’s Thomas Lemar heavily linked with a move to Anfield.
However, according to Bleacher Report, Hammers playmaker Manuel Lanzini is seen as a potential replacement for Coutinho.
The report claims that the Reds have been keeping an eye on Lanzini’s progress for some time now, and he is a realistic target for the January window. He is valued at £40m according to various reports.
A deal for Lemar appears to be too tough to seal in the winter window, while Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez is not a serious target for Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool apparently see a similar skill set to Coutinho in Lanzini, including creativity and a good set piece. The 24-year-old has been capped twice by Argentina, and is allegedly keen to move to a bigger club if the opportunity arises.
Bleacher Report add: “Sources close to Lanzini say Liverpool have not made any contact yet, however, that situation could change.”
