The ex-Everton attacker is believed to be in the plans of Jurgen Klopp and wants him at Anfield if Brazilian playmaker leaves the club.

The Spain giants are expected to reignite their pursuit of 25-year-old Liverpool star when the transfer window will be reopened in January.

Despite offering around £118m for Coutinho in the summer, Jurgen Klopp has blocked the midfielders transfer to the Nou Camp.

However, Coutinho remains keen on to make a switch to Barcelona and transfer could happen in winter.

And according to Spanish source Barcelona head-coach, Ernesto Valverde has asked the club to sign Coutinho in order ot compete for all possible trophies.

However, to land the 25-year-old,  Barcelona could lose their summer signing Gerrard Deulofeu.

Barcelona activated their buy-back clause and re-signed explosive Spaniard from Everton.

Deulefeu faces a swift exit and returns to Everton’s bitter rivals Liverpool in order to help Barcelona to land Philippe Coutinho.
