Barcelona renew attempts to sign Liverpool star after major transfer

Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have broken into a nervous sweat following the latest gossip.

Barcelona’s pursuit of Philippe Coutinho in recent weeks has been very public but the Catalan’s interest seems to have cooled in the past few days as Ernesto Valverde’s side have battled to push a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele over the line.

Optimistic Liverpool fans had hoped that meant the end of Barcelona’s ploy to get Coutinho but it seems there’s no such luck, as Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo state the Catalan giants are to renew their advances heading into the final week of the window.

The 25-year-old has expressed his desire to move, handing in a transfer request, but Liverpool have so far stood firm on their statement that the Brazilian will not be sold. However, it will be extremely difficult for the Reds to continuously fend off the interest of the Spanish giants.

Landlord’s Verdict

Liverpool can stand firm all they like but the fact of the matter is that if Philippe Coutinho wants to leave then he should be allowed to do so. No player is bigger than the club and by allowing the situation to drag on, Liverpool may have made things worse for themselves.

The Reds have a lack of time to get a replacement through the door should Coutinho leave but keeping a player on the books who doesn’t want to be there could lead to disastrous consequences across the squad, especially in the negotiations with players like Emre Can- who has less than a year to run on his deal.
