Liverpool are willing to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January, according to new reports in Spain.
The Brazilian midfielder was the subject of a number of bids in the summer but the Reds turned all of them down as they took a hardline approach to Barcelona’s interest.
Coutinho even handed in a transfer request to try and force a move away from Anfield but no transfer materialised and he stayed on Merseyside.
However, the Spanish publication Sport claims that Liverpool will “contemplate the possibility of talking about a possible transfer of their star” as the Catalan giants look to reignite their interest in the next window.
The report continues by saying that Coutinho has not given up on making his dream move happen and Barca are hopeful that they can keep in contact with the Reds over a potential January deal.
Since the summer saga, Coutinho has been reintegrated back into Jurgen Klopp’s squad and scored a wonderful free-kick in Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Leicester on Saturday,
He also set up Mohamed Salah for the opening goal and the 25-year-old will be part of the squad that travels to Russia to play Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.
