Liverpool rejects improved offer from Barca for Coutinho

Liverpool has rejected an improved £80million - plus add-ons - bid from Barcelona for Brazilian superstar Philippe Coutinho.

Barcelona has seen their third offer turned down by the Merseyside club for the Reds midfielder after seeing previous bid of £72 million instantly rejected, reports Mirror.

The Spanish giants were hoping that this latest improved offer would be enough to clinch Coutinho's signature, but Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, are adamant he is staying at Anfield and not for sale.

Barcelona are desperate to land the signature of the 25-year-old after selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee.

New coach Ernesto Valverde wants to strengthen his squad following their humiliating Spanish Super Cup defeat against Real Madrid this week.

Barcelona completed the signing of former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho.

Jurgen Klopp has maintained that his star midfielder is not for sale this summer at any price even though Coutinho handed in a transfer request last week.

The talented midfielder has yet to feature for Liverpool this season after sustaining a back injury in training and will be absent once again when the Reds face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
