Liverpool have spent money this summer like a club on a mission, and supporters are loving the change of approach.
Partly funded by cashing in on Coutinho in January, Liverpool have signed Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho to add to the pre-arranged deal for Naby Keita.
New signing Fabinho has promised to work on luring one more high profile addition to Anfield, Kylian Mbappe.
Fabinho played alongside Mbappe at Monaco and says the France World Cup winner was in contact to congratulate him on his £43.7 million transfer to Anfield.
He told The Guardian: "Kylian has already said he will remain at PSG for the next season but I will try slowly to convince him to come to Liverpool.
“Kylian sent me a message congratulating me on going to Liverpool. I have not had the chance to congratulate him yet on what he did winning the World Cup but what France did was fantastic. What Mbappé did in two years of professional football is amazing."
Paris Saint-Germain signed Mbappe from Monaco and are unlikely to want to let him go right now, when he has just become an icon for French football by inspiring their World Cup win.
Even next summer may be far too early for Mbappe to even consider a move, but if and when he does, Fabinho is attempting to position Liverpool as an attractive destination.
Reds fans will hope that within a couple of years homegrown young gun Rhian Brewster may be ready to emulate his success for club and country.
