Lallana has been one of Liverpool's most important players ever since Klopp walked through the door, but now he is needed at his best level more than ever before.

"Liverpool is no longer the same without you my magical brother", Firmino wrote on social media following his friend's departure to the Nou Camp.

"Stop-gap" is a term that's unbefitting of players that harbour the qualities that the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Lucas Moura possess, but a term that Liverpool should be considering when discussing how best to finish the season.

With 160 million euros in the coffers after the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, Liverpool are combing the market for potential reinforcements in January.

The Brazilian directly contributed towards 20 goals in as many appearances, and his influence was nearly unrivalled in the squad.

In the 13 league games since then, Liverpool has won nine and drawn the other four.

'I Don't Think Mahrez Would Want to Go to Arsenal' – Wise

The second most expensive transfer in football history, that of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool to Barcelona, nearly had a twist in the tale.

I have been speaking to contacts around Liverpool to gauge how else they will move on from losing their Magic Man, and many expect the funds to go towards Klopp's long-term plan.

The £75 million signing of Virgil van Dijk and impending summer arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig suggest that Liverpool once again see themselves as big spenders, but Coutinho's leaving has placed pressure on them to back that up. Now that the Brazilian is gone, the former Southampton captain should be a regular starter in the center of the park because he is the most creative midfielder in the squad.

"There is nothing new about this situation and so that speculation is not true", Leipzig head coach Ralph Hasenhuettl said on Thursday (11 January), the Daily Telegraph reports.

Coutinho has been a scourge of City in recent seasons, scoring winners at Anfield in 2014 and '15, and being the driving force behind Liverpool's thrilling 4-1 win over City at Etihad Stadium in November 2015.

According to Sky Germany, however, Leipzig will stand firm on keeping Keita until the end of the season, even if an improved fee is offered.
