Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Philippe Coutinho’s £27m loan fee, which has been reported by Catalunya Radio (via The Daily Mail).
The story states that Barcelona have offered the Brazil international to Premier League clubs on a season-long loan deal for a sum of £27m, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal said to be in the running.
The Reds sold Coutinho back in 2018 for a sum of £142m, but things haven’t quite gone to plan for the former Inter Milan man at the Camp Nou.
The 27-year-old still possesses enough talent to make an impact on the big stage and fans of the Premier League will know all about what he can do after his time at Anfield, but a fee of £27m for just one season seems rather steep.
Let’s take a look at what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about the news…
I would do it with an option to buy at the end for a set price

Sorry but the money we earned last season this is peanuts. Go get him then negotiate a permanent deal after the loan!

Almost 30m for one season loan? For that price i prefer pay a little more and buy zyech.

No team can pay that amount of money for a season loan deal.

Maybe 17m. But not 27m for a season

Guaranteed 10 goals plus 10 assists…no brainier

27m for the title ? I’ll take that anyday

Well if we were to go buy him after the loan expires for 40-50 million and add the loan fee to it it’s really not an issue
