Barca chief confirms renewed interest in Liverpool winger

Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau has reportedly revealed that the Spanish giants are prepared to make another attempt at landing Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho in January.

Grau was speaking in a recent press conference where the bigwig admitted that the Catalans are ‘ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market’ after failing to agree on a deal with Liverpool for the Brazilian last summer.

Barca director Albert Soler recently went on record to disclose that the Reds had rejected a number of bids of up to around £138m for the 25-year-old and that talks ultimately hit a wall when the English side demanded £180m for the playmaker - claims that Liverpool categorically denied.

The La Liga aces’ hopes may not be misplaced as Coutinho recently hinted that Liverpool would allow him to leave come January - a development which has since been corroborated by a reputable Spanish news outlet.
