Liverpool not interested to sign Brazilian midfielder for cut-price deal

By | July 11, 2020

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly unlikely to make an approach for Philippe Coutinho, regardless of the price tag of the Barcelona midfielder.

Since allowing the South American playmaker to move to Nou Camp back in January 2018, the Merseyside Reds have progressed into one of the best European teams, winning last campaigns Champions League and being crowned as the Premier League champions earlier last week after Chelsea beat 2-1 Manchester City.

However, with Barcelona increasingly desperate to part ways with Coutinho in a bid to cut costs, there has been reports over a possible return to Anfield.

Despite Brazilian now believed to be available for £63m, The Mirror reports that the alleged development has not changed the Merseyside Reds stance regarding the player.

The report reiterates that the decision to withdraw from the race for Timo Werner highlights that the Merseyside giants will not pay over £50m for any player this summer.

Coutinho has spent the season on loan at German giants, Bayern Munich who have little interest in pushing through a permanent deal.

Meanwhile, Liverpool could agree and sign another Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele who is likely to depart from the club ahead of the 2019/20 season.
