The Merseyside outfit Liverpool have already opened talks for a new deal with Belgium international Divock Origi ahead of the coming season.
It was initially reported that Divock Origi would be leaving the club at the end of the season as a result of his lack of playing time but that seems to be changing at the moment with Liverpool impressed by his performance.
Divock Origi has been useful for the Jurgen Klopp team despite his lack of playing time as his brace against Spanish La Liga outfit will not be forgotten in a hurry which adds to the two important wins he got his team in the course of the season.
This has already improved the profile of the player and it has been considered that he should not be allowed to leave the club anytime soon.
However, the Reds team are now ready to pay Divock Origi more than the usual £60 million in his current contract to be able to convince him on a stay and as a way of rewarding him for a good job.
Meanwhile, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he would keep his team together and will not need to move out for big signings, stressing that he is happy with his squad.
Coutinho’s Shirt Number At New Club Revealed
Sportswear manufacturing giants Adidas have revealed the shirt number of Philippe Coutinho at German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich according to the UK Mirror.
The shirt number was leaked via their German language account on Instagram.
The deleted post had Coutinho’s name at the back of jersey number 10.
Philippe Coutinho wore the same jersey number while he was at Liverpool before his move to Spanish champions Barcelona at the start of 2018.
The 27-year-old has not found his form since he swapped England for Spain during the 2018 winter transfer window.
His transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona made him the most expensive player in the history of the Catalan club but the player has not been able to match that hype with his performances on the pitch.
Barcelona agreed on a club-record fee of €160m for Coutinho.
The Brazilian international will join Bayern Munich on loan for the new season for a fee of around €20m.
The Bavarian giants have the option to sign him on a permanent deal when the loan deal expires at the end of the season.
Philippe Coutinho would be the temporary replacement for the attacking duo of Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben.
Veteran wingers Robben and Ribery left the club this summer.

Man Utd Target Sends Encouraging Message To Coutinho
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is certain that Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho will be an instant hit when he completes his transfer to the Allianz Arena at the start of next week.
The Polish international spoke to reporters about Phillipe Coutinho shortly after the German Bundesliga clash with capital club Hertha Berlin on Friday night.
When asked about Coutinho, the Bayern Munich hitman said that the former Liverpool midfielder won’t have any issues with the bedding in process when he finally moves to Bayern Munich.
Robert Lewandowski was on fire against Hertha Berlin as he scored two goals for the Bavarian giants.
His brace was not enough as Bayern Munich could only play out a 2-2 draw with the German capital club.
After the game, it was confirmed by club president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that Philippe Coutinho will join the Bavarian giants on a season-long loan deal with the option for a permanent transfer when the loan spell ends next summer.
Philippe Coutinho has not enjoyed the best of times at Barcelona since joining the Spanish La Liga champions at the start of last year in a deal worth €160m.

Ernesto Valverde Warns Griezmann After Underwhelming Barcelona Debut
Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has called out summer signing Antoine Griezmann after he underperformed in his debut for the Catalan giants.
French World Cup winner Griezmann was largely anonymous during the opening La Liga game of the season.
Barcelona traveled to the new San Mames to take on Atheltic Bilbao and it ended in a disappointing 1-0 defeat made possible by a spectacular 89th-minute bicycle kick from substitute and ageless striker Aritz Aduriz.
After the match, Ernesto Valverde told reporters that long-term Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann has to be more involved in subsequent games.
Antoine Griezmann caught a lone figure upfront for the large part of the game following the absence of star player Lionel Messi who was missing in action as a result of a thigh injury sustained in training.
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez also got injured in the first half of the Athletic Bilbao game thus leaving Antoine Griezmann on his own upfront.
Griezmann is expected to deliver at Barcelona following his big money move from fellow Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid this summer.
Barcelona paid €120m (£107m) for his transfer thus making him the second most expensive signing in the history of the club after Philippe Coutinho.
Bayern Confirm Loan Deal For Coutinho
German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have confirmed that they have reached a loan agreement for Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Bayern’s CEO (Chief Executive Officer), Karl-Heinz Rummenigge made this known while he was fielding questions from reporters shortly after their league opener on Friday night.
Bayern Munich didn’t have the best start to the defense of their Bundesliga title after they played out a 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin.
After the game, the Bayern Munich supremo told reporters that Philippe Coutinho will undergo his medical at the start of the new week.
Bayern Munich have reached a one-year loan agreement for the Brazilian international with the option to sign him permanently at the end of the loan spell next summer.
Philippe Coutinho came close to returning to the Premier League on the deadline of the English top flight transfer market. Fortunately, the move fell through.
The 27-year-old was linked with the North London duo of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur on the last day of the Premier League transfer window.
Coutinho has had to leave Barcelona on loan after he became surplus to requirements following the arrival of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer in a £107m deal.
Barcelona are also on the trail of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker Neymar.
