Good move for Liverpool?
Instead of this being a move to replace Coutinho, this looks like more of a move to replace Emre Can, who looks to be on his way out of the club.
Strootman is more of a deep-lying midfielder, with a brilliant passing range, rather than a forward-thinking player like the Brazilian.
However, this would be a good reinvestment of some of the money the club has received for Coutinho.
The Netherlands international has been in line for a move to the Premier League for a while now, and Liverpool would be stronger with him in their squad.
