Spanish giants Barcelona have recently confirmed that they’re still interested in signing of Liverpool’s attacking midfielder Philipe Coutinho and could try to sign him during the January transfer window.
The Catalan giants have failed to lure Brazilian star to Nou Camp this summer seen three bids for his signature being rejected.
The 25-year-old South American attacker has handed in a transfer request in order to force a move to Nou Camp. However, Jurgen Klopp has blocked his move to La Liga giants.
However, Barcelona chief executive Oscar Grau has yesterday confirmed that the Catalan team would try to sign 25-year-old playmaker in January.
‘We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market or any player the technical staff request,’ said Grau.
‘But it is important to adjust ourselves, so if there are to be arrivals, there must be exits as well
‘We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer. After taxes we received about €188m in income and a direct financial impact on the club’s treasury of €144m.’
Coutinho has started this season strong already scoring 3 goals for Liverpool and in the absence of Sadio Mane he is expected to be a key player for the Reds.
