Reds target Napoli star
Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne is being linked with Liverpool should the club's owners back down and sell Philippe Coutinho.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp again spoke of his determination to keep hold of the Brazilian despite reports claiming he has handed in a transfer request to try and force through a move to Barcelona.
Klopp is hoping FSG stand by their decision not to cash in on Coutinho, who missed the 3-3 draw against Watford on Saturday with a back injury, but admits the decision could be taken out of his hands.
Coutinho's future is sure to be sorted one way or the other sooner rather than later and Klopp will want a quick resolution to give him enough time to draft in a replacement.
The 26-year-old Insigne was a revelation in Serie A last season when firing home 18 goals and chipping in with nine assists, and is seen as the perfect replacement for Coutinho should he move on.
Reports claim Liverpool will offer a club-record £60million for the Italian international, and believe that will be enough to secure a deal.
