Barcelona determined to sign Coutinho by Sunday despite Liverpool rejecting bid - report

11 Agosto 2017

His form was rewarded with a new long-term contract - without a buyout clause - worth around £150,000 per week in January, making him the highest-paid player at Anfield.

Jürgen Klopp has insisted Liverpool will not accept any bids for Philippe Coutinho after the club rejected an improved £90m offer for the Brazil playmaker.

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table in Klopp's first full season in charge as Coutinho netted 13 times and made seven assists to help the Reds secure a Champions League spot.

The Sun says that Liverpool are "adamant" Coutinho is going nowhere but there is growing speculation that if Barcelona up their offer to £120m then the Reds will find it hard to resist. Yeah, I'm sure there's players who can influence the football as much as Coutinho. He has been fantastic for Liverpool. "We are not in that situation".

Lanzini has been a revelation since he joined West Ham and they want to hold on to him.

If a deal were to be done, then Konami would get their wish of having another Barcelona star grace the cover of their product in South America. So all signs indicate Coutinho is set to become a Barca player in the coming hours, making him potentially available for the Liga opener against Real Betis on August 20. But just because of one request of one club, we don't have to think about that.

Liverpool's restraint is refreshing too.

In the calendar year, Coutinho has outscored every Brazilian player in Europe - including the world's most expensive player, Neymar - while only Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi managed more goals from outside the box than the Liverpool No.10 across the continent's top five leagues last season.

Dembele, 20, was involved in a training ground bust up with Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki last week and has spoken of his desire to one day play for Barca.
