Barcelona set to launch £108m bid for Coutinho

Barcelona is set to launch an attempt to sign one of the best Premier League players this season with a £108m bid for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

The Camp Nou giants have been linked with the move for the Brazilian since the start of the summer window but Liverpool is not ready to listen to offers and the Reds are unwilling to sell at any price.

Barcelona wants to speed up their keen interest in themove to land the playmaker, having sold Neymar for a world record fee to Paris Saint –Germain this season.

Liverpool has rejected Barcelona initial bid of £90m this summer but will up it to £108m.

Bucchioni told TuttoMercatoWeb: "With €222m (£200m) in hand, to be spent, Barcelona are knocking on multiple doors and talking with more players.

"Liverpool is set to [lose] Coutinho. The deal with the player is there.

"The English have said no to €100m (£90m), but the offer will rise soon [to] around €120m (£108m). Still [they] cannot say no."

Bucchioni added: "But Coutinho cannot be enough, the other great goal is [Paulo] Dybala.

"No secret, [the] Argentinean has always been liked. Barcelona prepares a bid of €120m (£108m)."

Barcelona will play Real Madrid twice in August for the Spanish Super Cup title, the first game will be played at the Camp Nou on the 13th while the return leg will be at the Santiago Bernabeu on the 16th.
