Liverpool Star Coutinho Claimed to Have Made Secret Deal

Klopp Coutinho

The Liga side saw three bids rejected by Liverpool, with their final offer worth £114.2 million, as the Reds held firm over the future of their star No. 10.

Le10 Sport claim that in an attempt to further frustrate his former club Barcelona, Neymar has pursuaded PSG to try sign to sign the Liverpool playmaker.

"We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request", Grau said. What we want is to have the most competitive squad possible.

Club CEO Oscar Grau has confirmed the Catalan side's intentions, but admits that the Brazilian won't come cheap.

Grau announced a predicted record revenue of €897m for this season, an increase of €189m on last season, partly thanks to Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain.

That is according to Paul Joyce of The Times, who is knowledgeable when it comes to all matters Liverpool.

One of the biggest problems in the last summer for Liverpool's response to Coutinho's request to be sold is looking for a substitute figure. The midfielder missed Liverpool's opening matches of the new season due to a reported back injury, only to score for Brazil when he joined up with the Selecao for global duty.

But Dembele has endured a nightmare start to life at the Camp Nou.

Klopp failed to sign top target Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the summer transfer window to leave the Liverpool boss with centre-halves Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan.
