What Liverpool have said to Barcelona amid latest Philippe Coutinho rumours

Liverpool news Philippe Coutinho Barcelona

Reports this week suggested Soler would step away from footballing duties at Camp Nou and, speaking at a news conference to announce Barcelona's latest financial results, Grau insisted a move for Brazil midfielder Coutinho was still on the agenda.

Barcelona chief executive, Oscar Grau, has warned Liverpool that they are ready to resume their chase to land Philippe Coutinho in January.

Should Jurgen Klopp's side take him into consideration it could see Paulinho take a similar career path to Coutinho, who moved to Europe to join Internazionale as a 16-year-old in 2008, five years before joining Liverpool for £8.5m.

From Barcelona's point of view, the Brazilian will be cup-tied in the Champions League, which means there will be little value in signing a player they can not feature in their most important competition.

"We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer", he added.

However, the player finally agreed to play in the Champions League for Liverpool during the first part of the season with after they promised to negotiate his exit in January.

Liverpool made their stance clear when they rejected Coutinho's transfer request and rebuffed Barcelona's bids of £72 million, £90.3m and £118m.

It's hardly surprising that Barcelona's interest in Coutinho hasn't wavered. The Reds were unmoved when Coutinho officially asked him to be sold. Mundo claims, Klopp and Liverpool positively accept Coutinho's terms and promise to weigh Barcelona's offer.
