Philippe Coutinho future

Philippe Coutinho celebrates scoring the opener during the Premier League game between Liverpool and Swansea City on December 26, 2017

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho looks increasingly destined to join Barcelona in a mega-money deal this January.

Barca failed with three attempts to sign the Brazilian during the summer, despite the player himself making it clear that he wanted to join the Spanish giants.

Liverpool are now bracing themselves for another approach from Ernesto Valverde's side, with reports speculating that the Reds will not consider selling their star asset for anything below £130m.

Coutinho may have played his final game for Liverpool, having been left out of the New Year's Day victory over Burnley, but the midfielder is sure to command a significant fee should the deal go through this month.
