Barcelona desperate for Coutinho: £120 million

Barcelona have already had a £72m bid rejected for Coutinho.

The Catalan side are looking for a marquee signing as the 222 million euros they got for Neymar begin to burn a hole in their pocket. Coutinho is the objective, and the Spanish giants are hoping £120 million will convince the Reds.

£120 million (132 million euros) is the fee Barcelona have put to one side for Philippe Coutinho. As reported by the Daily Star, Valverde’s side will do everything they can to secure the services of the Brazilian.

‘Neymar’s departure has made Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho their top target to replace him’, the mentioned source told its readers on Sunday.

Klopp, however, is reluctant to sell his star playmaker. The Brazilian is a key figure in the German manager’s lineup and his exit would create many problems at Anfield.

Barcelona are hoping to change Klopp’s mind with £120 million euros, a sumptuous fee which would allow the Reds to find a replacement with almost a month to go until the transfer window closes.
