?Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes his old team have the makings of Premier League title contenders this season, but only if two key things happen before the transfer window closes at the end of the month. 

According to Redknapp, Liverpool can mount a serious challenge if they manage to keep Philippe Coutinho out of the clutches of Barcelona and somehow land unsettled centre-back Virgil van Dijk from Southampton. - Keep Coutinho, get Van Dijk. That's a title bid right there. The Liverpool players I talk to call him 'the little genius', said Redknapp during 2017/18 season preview. 

The Dutch international handed in a transfer request last week in hope of forcing through a Southampton exit, with the Reds and Chelsea keen. On the other side Barcelona continue with their pursuit for Coutinho and are hoping to bring the Brazilian to Nou Camp.
