Jamie Redknapp believes Liverpool could struggle to keep Philippe Coutinho beyond the summer.

The Brazil international was linked with a potential move to La Liga giants Barcelona in the last transfer window.

Liverpool FC rejected Barcelona’s approach for the 25-year-old attacker despite the Spanish side offering in excess of £100m.

Coutinho even handed in a transfer request but the Reds refused to alter their stance on the South American playmaker.

The former Inter Milan star has scored 12 goals and has made eight assists in 16 starts in all competitions this term.

Ex-Liverpool FC captain Redknapp warned that the Reds could have a big problem on their hands next summer.

“I personally believe Liverpool will have a problem [with Coutinho] in the summer,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
