Barcelona 'close' to signing Liverpool star — Coutinho

Jurgen Klopp

Last month Barcelona had another bid rejected of £72m and appear no closer to signing the Brazil international.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's latest transfer news and rumours roundup. "So what they offer in the end doesn't matter", he said.

Coutinho signed a five-year contract at Anfield back in January, with Liverpool ensuring that no release clause was inserted.

The news comes as Coutinho arrived at the club's training base on Thursday having not trained all week because of a back complaint.

A delegation from Barcelona headed up by chief executive Oscar Grau travelled to Liverpool on Monday night to finalise the negotiation, sources said.

Souness, though, fears that the 25-year-old will seek a switch if a suitable offer is tabled, forcing Liverpool to reluctantly sanction a sale.

"I think that - alongside a run into the latter stages of the Champions League and one of the domestic cups - would be a good season for him".

Ever since Neymar moved to PSG, and Barcelona set their sights on Liverpool playmaker Phil Coutinho, Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague has been very vocal. "We are not in that situation".

Steven Gerrard has pleaded with Liverpool not to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona this summer, The Sport Review reports.

The respected outlet say a group from Barca flew over to Liverpool on Monday for detailed talks with Liverpool bosses after failing with two earlier bids for the player.

If Barcelona do manage to sign the Brazilian, many expect him to fill the gap Neymar has left open on the left-wing, which he would have no problem doing.

That conversation, however, came before Barcelona banked £200m (NZ$354m) courtesy of Neymar's departure to Paris Saint-Germain.
