The rebuilding will continue this summer for Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers, one where they will want to keep faith with the scouting approach that brought them Coutinho in January. It will be an interesting summer for the club, namely to see just how smart they can be in their quest to build a squad good enough for a title challenge in the Premier League.
Coutinho should provide plenty of evidence that there are great bargains to be had in Europe, specifically with younger talent that the club are looking to acquire. Liverpool has already been burned by their decision to invest from within the Premier League, and while Daniel Sturridge may prove to be a good signing, he should be the exception moving forward. Liverpool is not in a position to be reckless with their transfer business.
