Barcelona eye swoop for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho…
Barcelona have reportedly switched their attention to Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian, who moved to Anfield from Inter Milan in 2013, has become an established member of Brendan Rodgers’s side over the last few years.
The 23-year-old committed his future to the Merseyside outfit by signing a new long-term deal seven months ago, but according to Spanish website Fichajes, Barcelona are keen to persuade the South American to move to the Camp Nou.
A Coutinho departure would be a huge blow to Liverpool as they have already lost two of the attacking force that came close to guiding the Reds to the Premier League title in 2014.
Luis Suarez joined Barcelona last summer and Raheem Sterling made the switch to Manchester City in July.
