Despite Liverpool playing hardball over Coutinho's transfer, Jurgen Klopp is reportedly planning for life without the playmaker and Insigne heads the list as realistic replacements for Coutinho.
A goal on his competitive debut from Mohamed Salah was not enough for Liverpool to open their Premier League season with a win, as Watford snatched an injury-time equaliser in a pulsating 3-3 draw on Saturday. Coutinho requested to leave the club in an email hours later.
"In football life, it makes sense to be really self-critical and that's what we are of course, but in the end if you do everything on the first matchday, you can not expect perfection", explained Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to the club's official website.
'If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore.
"I'm responsible for all of players, not just one, two or three".
Klopp also said he had "nothing to say about this" when asked what Coutinho had said to him regarding the Barcelona interest. We have to work on it but for us different things are important, the physicality in the beginning - not ready for these things.
"I don't think (it changes anything)".
He fumed: "I don't make the decision". I didn't see the club insiders today.

In the face of Saturday's United Nations sanctions, North Korea remained defiant, saying the UN's move was unwarranted and unfair. On preconditions for reopening talks with North Korea, Tillerson said "we'll know it when we see it".
"You'll have to ask the club. But I don't think so because I think it was pretty clear what the club, FSG, said about it".
Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool defended the majority of set pieces "really well" in the 3-3 draw at Watford on Saturday, but admitted his side still need to improve on them after conceding from two corner kicks.
Watford had made an excellent start in manager Marco Silva's first competitive game in charge and led on nine minutes when Stefano Okaka powerfully headed home Jose Holebas' corner.
Miguel Britos equalised for Liverpool in the injury time of the game to rescue a point for Watford.
Klopp was pleased with Salah's second half display following the Egypt winger's club record £34 million move from Roma.
"As a team we played well, especially the first half".
Coutinho no longer wants to play for Anfield. "So yes, I am fine with his contribution". After a decent start which saw the Hornets in the top half of the table for much of the first part of last season, Watford descended into the relegation-watch zone, finishing the campaign with five straight losses.
