Liverpool face battle to keep star man this January with major offer anticipated

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to fend off any interest from Barcelona in the January transfer window in key man Philippe Coutinho.

The stylish attacking midfielder has been an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the past two seasons now but the Reds face a battle to hold onto him.

Barcelona were very interested in Coutinho in the summer window and made several approaches for the Brazil international.

However, Liverpool stood firm and insisted that he was not for sale, even when Barcelona bid in excess of £115m.

Although Coutinho’s head was turned and he wanted a move to the Nou Camp, he remained a Liverpool player and has returned to the team with a string of impressive displays, picking up goals and assists as well as stirring up excitement with his forward forays.

According to a report by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will revisit this move for Philippe Coutinho in the January transfer window with one final attempt at luring him to Spain.

Agent Kia Joorachbian has been appointed to oversee this deal and Barcelona are likely to submit an offer which is similar to their last one in the summer.

Liverpool are likely to try to resist interest in the 25-year-old again in January.
