Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has advised manager Jurgen Klopp to not use up all his budget on bringing Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho, and should instead target Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha.
Coutinho is likely to be sold by Barcelona having not impressed both fans and the club since he joined from Liverpool in January of last year. One of the clubs that is reportedly interested in the player are the current Champions League winners.
However, Aldridge believes that Klopp should not spend everything on one player and instead look at bringing Zaha as he would be able to offer more up front if any of the front three get injured.

He told the Irish Independent: “Coutinho left on a sour note as he forced his way out of the club and while he is a great player, I don't think Liverpool should blow their transfer budget on bringing him back.
“Wilfried Zaha is the one I think he [Klopp] should go for,” added Aldridge.
