Barcelona can not "confirm or deny" interest in Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho

The last few days have been filled with reports speculating about Philippe Coutinho's future and although numerous sources have lacked credibility, fans have been very anxious.

Barcelona are in need of procuring midfield reinforcements this summer in order to create a stronger side as they get ready to challenge their arch-rivals Real Madrid for the La Liga trophy next season. However, the report notes that they may be willing to part ways with him if the two clubs can agree on a transfer fee. As of the moment, the Reds still refuse to sell him.

However, Coutinho only recently signed a new contract and is now one of the highest earners at Liverpool which definitely means he would not be sold for cheap. However, also citing Mundo Deportivo's report, Sport Witness said it's not clear whether an offer has been made.

Klopp knows that if he wants his team to improve on last season, keeping hold of his star player will be key, and bringing in Lanzini would add quality and depth to his squad. Another complication comes from Neymar's rumoured €200m move to PSG, which should guarantee some serious cash reserves for the already mega-rich Barcelona. It's worth noting that Coutinho has continually refused to rule out a move to play with Messi and company.
