What Liverpool have said to Barcelona amid latest Philippe Coutinho rumours

  • Barcelona Boss We’re Prepared To Sign Countinho In January

Brazilian youngster Paulinho is being tipped as a potential long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, should Liverpool eventually sell the 25-year-old playmaker.

However, we're not talking about where to catch some sun in the winter months, but rather about the fate of one particular footballer: Philippe Coutinho.

'We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request, ' Grau said.

"We want to have the most competitive squad possible".

It's hardly surprising that Barcelona's interest in Coutinho hasn't wavered.

Now, a claim appears reported by Mundo Deportivo that says Coutinho has actually won a secret deal with manager Juergen Klopp and Liverpool management. Liverpool's position has not changed and they are furious about Grau's comments.


Anfield officials rejected all offers for the Brazil global, who submitted a transfer request in attempts to force a proposed transfer to the Nou Camp.

After having three bids rejected last summer, the third of which was rumoured to be in the region of £119 million, the media are championing different stories with regards to what might happen this January.

Coutinho has since found the back of the net in his next two games against Russian side Spartak Moscow and promoted side Newcastle United.

Yet with the Reds seventh in the Premier League, and showing little evidence that the defence is on the rise, there will always be a part of Coutinho that has eyes on a move to the Camp Nou.
