Still does not mean Coutinho is definitely off, but many believe the deal was actually struck last summer for him to leave in January. The timing of VVD coming in January also reeks of other moves by Liverpool. But, we shall see.

Some excellent players are out of contract come the summer. Can imagine there'll be a clamour to secure their signatures this month. Still shocked Arsene has allowed his two best players to run down their contracts, and Utd have 8 (yes, 8!) players in the final months of their current deals.

- Alexis Sanchez, 29, Arsenal
- Mesut Ozil, 29, Arsenal
- Leon Goretzka, 22, Schalke
- Stefan de Vrij, 25, Lazio
- Ander Herrera, 28, Man Utd
- Juan Mata, 29, Man Utd
- Ross Barkley, 24, Everton
- Emre Can, 23, Liverpool
- Kepa Arrizabalaga, 22, Ath Bilbao
- Luke Shaw, 22, Man Utd (although there are reports that a 12 month extension was activated)
- Max Meyer, 22, Schalke
- Bernard, 25, Shakhtar
- Milan Badelj, 28, Fiorentina

Goretzka would be a superb signing, but he seemingly has his choice of top clubs in Europe. Stefan de Vrij is a quality CB, and could be an interesting option should Alderweireld leave in the summer.
