Football transfer news and rumours: ‘Barcelona will offer Liverpool £120m for Philippe Coutinho’

Barcelona will test Liverpool’s resolve in the coming days with a £120m bid for Philippe Coutinho – according to the Daily Star.

Having sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for £198m, Barca want to beef up their attack before the start of the season, and have long been linked with a move for Coutinho.

Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp has been insisting all summer that Coutinho, 25, will not be sold, but a bid of almost double the original £70m that was originally offered could be too much to resist.
