Barcelona Admit Coutinho Bid Is Imminent

Can'Coutinho is best I've seen

Liverpool are understood to have promised Philippe Coutinho that they will "facilitate" his departure to Barcelona during the upcoming January transfer window if the La Liga giants return with a reasonable offer.

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.

The Catalan side made multiple attempts at signing the Brazilian earlier in the year but according to reports, the Premier League club were holding out for 200 million euros ($237 million) and kept the midfielder.

"Right now there is nothing planned for the January window".

Former Spurs forward Crooks urged Klopp to finally improve Liverpool's defence if the Reds want to keep Coutinho in their squad in the long-term. "We weren't going to give €200m or €150m - we chose to step away from such an expensive market, our offer was less than €100m, with add-ons it could have reached €120m".




Reports originating from Spain claim that the Reds have struck a deal with the Brazilian that would enable them to retain him for a little longer but then allow him to leave from January 1st.

The Blaugrana, it's claimed, are ready with a deal worth £98.6m despite bidding nearly £20m more in the summer.

The Times' Paul Joyce, elaborating on Grau's comments, said that "Liverpool will be angered" by Barcelona's renewed efforts.

At this stage of the season, the hope will be that Coutinho ignores Barcelona's advances and continues to focus on his form at Anfield.
