Liverpool 'not ruling out Coutinho sale'

A report claims that Liverpool are open to listening to further offers from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho, having knocked back three separate bids during the summer.

Liverpool are reportedly contemplating the possibility of cashing in on Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho if Barcelona make a fresh approach in January.

The Reds knocked back three separate bids from the Catalan giants during the summer, the largest of which - made late in the window - totalled £114m.

Liverpool took a firm not-for-sale stance throughout the off-season, stressing that they would not offload Coutinho no matter how much was offered, despite the player handing in a transfer request to force a move.

Spanish outlet Sport claims that the Merseyside outfit are not totally against selling in the New Year, though, with the 25-year-old still desperate to complete a switch over the next 10 months.

Coutinho has slowly been integrated back into the Liverpool side since returning from a minor back injury earlier this month, scoring one and setting up another in the 3-2 win over Leicester City at the weekend.
