    Lanzini amazing player! He deserves to play in Liverpool and good replacement of Coutinho

  3. petro

    He should also check with Lamela and Ansaldi..It would give some encouragement to them..probably he might do it..

  4. Dfox1942

    That is what a proper manager does….not sit on his ass and call the same players.

  5. Gonzalo

    Liverpool is interested in Lanzini.

      That will be a great one for Manu if it happens.
