Souness would 'snap Barca's hand off' for Coutinho fee

Gerrard Coutinho Van Dijk

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca have long identified Seri as an alternative to Marco Verratti, but the Ivorian's arrival would not affect their pursuit of Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho. The Spanish club are looking for replacements for Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the month, while they also consider the Liverpool midfielder a flawless long-term replacement for Andres Iniests, who is in the final year of his contract.

The Reds have rejected two bids for the Brazil global this summer and have no plans to sell the 25-year-old.

The Reds have already turned down three offers for the Brazilian, worth £72 million, £90.4 million and £114.2 million respectively.

Sportsmail understands the Brazilian is yet to give up hope of sealing a dream move to Spain, despite Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisting on Tuesday that he is ready for Coutinho to return to the squad once he recovers from a back injury. "Yes, indeed, absolutely, 100%".

"Of course. You ask if everything is OK between me and him".

"He can't start tomorrow because on top of that, he's now ill", the German added.

"I'd make an argument for that, especially with the way Jürgen Klopp likes to play", Carragher said on Sky Sports.

This is said to be worth up to £138 million, with an initial £101 million potentially followed up by a further £37 million in performance-based add-ons.

Liverpool will reportedly turn down Barcelona's fourth bid for Philippe Coutinho as they plan to stand firm on their stance that the playmaker is not for sale. "I've no idea at this moment (when he will return), we would have to check when he is back".
