Barcelona prepared to make new offer for Liverpool's Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho

Since failing to get a move to the Nou Camp, Liverpool's number ten has returned to the starting XI with a vengeance, scoring three brilliant goals and producing man of the match displays, despite the Reds lukewarm form of late.

Rumours then emerged that the Premier League club would let him leave Anfield in the January window if Coutinho agreed to play out the rest of the calendar year for the club.

Barcelona "are prepared to sign" Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho in January, the club's chief executive Oscar Grau has confirmed.

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

Bad news, Liverpool fans.

The Catalan giants made repeated attempts to sign Coutinho (above) in the summer but were ultimately rebuffed, with the Reds rejecting their final bid of £117million and remaining adamant they have no desire to sell.

However, any effort by the court to clear the decks of the travel ban issue is likely to be short-lived. The court made clear it was not taking a position on the merits of the case.

"He is one of those players that could easily go into a Barcelona or a Real Madrid as he is that clever and he has got such a good football brain, something that us ex-footballers dreamed of having, he is one step ahead".

That's according to Sky Sports La Liga expert Guillem Balague.

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

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

In the same deal, Coutinho also positively received option of him to keep playing with Liverpool in the Champions League although later he will be a cup-tie status with Barcelona.

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.
