Liverpool will accept to sell Philippe Coutinho is Barcelona offers sensational fee

August 13, 2017

According to the reports, Liverpool are prepared to sell Philipe Coutinho to Barcelona if they receive an offer of €150m.

It is believed that the Brazil international had indeed handed in a transfer request, despite initially denying he had asked to leave.

The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp maintains the actions of the 25-year-old star have come too late in the day to force a transfer to the Catalan club, who have earmarked the South American N.10 as the cornerstone of their rebuilding project, following Neymar’s world-record move to PSG.

Despite Klopp’s public protestations, the reports from Daily Record claim that Liverpool will reluctantly allow the former Inter player to depart should they receive an offer in the region of €150m, which would make Coutinho the second most expensive player of all-time.

Meanwhile, Rennes midfielder Benjamin Andre has reportedly emerged as a top target for Liverpool for the summer transfer window.

Ahead of their return to Europe, head coach Jurgen Klopp has been keen to reinforce in the middle of the pitch, an issue which has become more important since the departure of veteran midfielder Lucas Leiva.

The Anfield side have been frustrated in their attempts to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, but it appears that Jurgen Klopp has identified an alternative.

The reports from Le Telegramme claim that Liverpool are considering whether to make a move for Andre, who could cost in excess of £15m million.
