Premier League side Liverpool have confirmed their 32-man UEFA Champions League qualifier squad ahead of their clash with German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on Tuesday, as stated on the Metro.
German manager Jurgen Klopp has selected Philippe Coutinho in the squad despite Barcelona’s pursuit of the playmaker, who he says is not for sale at any price.
Forwards Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are also included as Liverpool look to fire past the German club.
The two noticeable players who have not been included are Frenchman Mamadou Sakho and Lazar Markovic. Both players have been linked with moves away from Anfield this summer, with Crystal Palace the most strongly linked with Sakho.
However, Liverpool’s £30 million valuation of the centre-back has put the Eagles off a move and with no way back for him at Liverpool, his future is unclear.
Right-back Nathaniel Clyne is also included in the squad for this tie but he is going to miss the Premier League opener.
Striker Danny Ings is still not fit enough for selection and is still recovering from a serious knee injury. The Englishman is hoping to be given a chance in the first-team squad after his recovery.
The Reds travel to Germany for the away fixture on Tuesday and will play the return leg at Anfield on Wednesday 23 August.
