McClaren: Alexis best Liverpool option to replace Coutinho

Former England coach Steve McClaren believes Liverpool should compete for the signature of Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez.

McClaren believes Alexis is the one option Liverpool should focus on if they sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

He said: “It's difficult. I would look at Sanchez from Arsenal as there may be a bit of movement there.

“£160 million is a lot of money. You can buy a lot for that (but) Liverpool won't want to lose Coutinho's quality.

“I could (see Sanchez at Anfield). Sanchez will be ambitious and he's that type of player that could replace Coutinho.

“But when you've got Salah, Mane, Firmino and Lallana, you might not need to replace him that much.

“Klopp will not want to lose Coutinho."
