Coutinho has Barca ambition - Suarez

10 November 2017

Reports in Spain claim that Liverpool have rejected Barcelona's latest transfer offer which was approximately £106.4million.

According to Sport's Joaquim Piera, an agreement made between Coutinho and the Catalan giants in the summer regarding a five-year deal will still be in place if he joins in January.

NEYMAR is reportedly trying his hardest to convince fellow Brazilian Philippe Coutinho to snub Barcelona and join him at Paris Saint-Germain.

While the statement won't make Coutinho any cheaper, Barcelona is still after the Brazilian.

Suarez spoke to Mundo Deportivo about whether Coutinho wanted to move to Barcelona, saying: "Obviously he must have because he's a player who has ambition".

The Liverpool attacker handed in a transfer request to the Anfield board in the summer as he tried to force through a switch to the Nou Camp.

Coutinho has asked Liverpool and his representatives to ignore any offers that come from PSG.

"He went through a hard and very complicated time, but as a professional he has continued to show how good a player he is and the personal quality he has".
