The leader of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho shows a high level of football and is located on the sight of many top clubs. The leadership of the Reds would not want to part with the Brazilian, but looks at possible candidates for replacement.
One of the candidates is 19-year-old Marseille midfielder Maxime Lopez. Liverpool have already made contact with the player and even hooked up Steven Gerrard to speed up the negotiation process.
“They show interest in me. I even met Steven Gerrard after the game,” said Lopez.
“He told me: in five years, you will take the place of Coutinho. I’d like to move to Liverpool, but also in Marseille, I feel good. At my age hard to decide on such transfers and separation from family will be difficult”, — said the young player.
“I know they have about 30 young players, not to mention the juniors. I have to be psychologically ready for such a transfer”.
This season, Lopez has played 26 matches, scored 1 goal and provided 7 assists.
