Yet despite Grau's comments, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague remains doubtful that Barça will actually submit a bid for the Brazilian in January.

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho is among 30 players nominated for the prestigious Ballon d'Or award, with the victor revealed later this month.

"We are ready to sign Coutinho or any other player (during the mercato this winter)".

Barcelona sold winger Neymar to Paris St Germain for a world-record fee of £198m in August, before spending £97m on Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool have agreed to allow Philippe Coutinho to finally secure his dream transfer to Barcelona next year, if you choose to believe today's reports.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request at Liverpool, who reportedly rebuffed three bids from Barca during the closing weeks of the window - the last of which was understood to have come in at £119 million (A$202 million).

Grau announced Barcelona's income to have reached €708m (A$1,077m) for the 2016-17 season, with a record budget of €897m (A$1,201m) in place for 2017-18.

"The club is in a position to give them the best team possible, which is what we want", he added. We could [sign in January].
