Jurgen Klopp believes any team in the world would miss Philippe Coutinho as the Liverpool midfielder’s future remains unresolved.

The Brazil international has been attracting interest from La Liga giants Barcelona in the last couple of weeks of the summer transfer window.

The Spanish outfit are looking to reinvest their world-record £198m transfer fee for Brazil superstar Neymar in some new playing staff.

Liverpool have already rejected a number of offers from the four-time European champions.

Coutinho handed in transfer request earlier this month as the Liverpool number 10 looked to force through a move to Barcelona.

The 25-year-old has missed all five of Liverpool’s games in the Champions League and the Premier League so far this season.

Liverpool have already won four of their opening five victories thanks to the performances of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Klopp admitted that he is pleased with how Liverpool have been able to cope with the absence of Coutinho and England star Adam Lallana.

“Each team in the world would miss Coutinho. He is not available for us at the moment,” Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“The team is dealing well with losing him and Adam Lallana. We need to play more often like this and we need these players.”

Liverpool hoisted themselves up to second place in the Premier League table thanks to their rout against Arsenal.

The Reds have signed AS Roma winger Salah, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke and Hull City defender Andy Robertson.
