Barcelona chief Grau: We have the money to buy Coutinho in January

The Brazil international's wish was not granted and he remains a Liverpool player, but Barcelona are set to reignite their attempts to sign the former Inter Milan starlet with club chief Oscar Grau saying earlier this week that the Blaugrana are now "prepared" to sign Coutinho.

Undeterred Barca bid three times for the 25-year-old, with their highest offering exceeding the £110million mark - each rejected by the Reds.

"We are ready to sign Coutinho or any other player".

Liverpool's problems could be made worse if they fail to make it out of the group stages in Europe before Christmas - and also if their Premier League challenge falters any further. "We want to have the most competitive team possible", Grau said. Mundo claims, Klopp and Liverpool positively accept Coutinho's terms and promise to weigh Barcelona's offer.

That's according to Sky Sports La Liga expert Guillem Balague.

Barca experienced a tumultuous time during the summer transfer market, losing Coutinho's Brazilian compatriot Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record €222 million, and bringing in Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million.

The Brazilian was subject to summer-long interest from the Spanish giants, who desperately wanted to recruit him in the wake of losing prized asset Neymar to PSG in an astronomical £198m deal. 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 worldwide duty.

"I 100 per cent would have sold him".

Coutinho has scored in his last three successive matches for Liverpool.
