Now that FC Barcelona have secured Ousmane Dembele’s signature, they will continue to pressurize Liverpool in order to finally capture Phillipe Coutinho.
The Catalan club announced the signature of French sensation Dembele late last night. The talented 20 year old had an extremely productive season with Dortmund last year, in which he laid on 21 assists in total.
While Dembele will still need to go a long way before he replaces Neymar, the youngster is still one of the best talents in world football and could one day become a genuine world class player.
But Coutinho is the one that Barcelona really want. Liverpool’s number 10 is a brilliant mid fielder, who is capable of playing both on the wings and in the center of the park.
Coutinho is considered to be the heir to Iniesta’s crown at the Nou Camp, which is why it is essential that Barcelona capture him.
And in spite of Liverpool stone walling the Catalan club, reports are now coming in that Coutinho has had a major row with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Brazilian has stated that he does not wish to play for Barcelona this season, and has demanded a move away from Barcelona. While Klopp has categorically ruled out his exit, this latest fight might change his mind.
Barcelona have said that they will come back with a final bid of around 138 million euros, which is why Coutinho has become a little desperate about his move.
With the transfer window ending in less than a week, we can sure of some major activity taking place at Liverpool.
