Barcelona's potential move for Arsenal star is great news for Liverpool

Barça failed with multiple bids for Coutinho in summer and talk of a renewed approach as soon as the transfer window re-opens in January has resulted in many, many headlines since August.

Barcelona wanted to sign the Brazil global in the summer of 2017, according to ESPN.

Recent reports from the Daily Mail suggest that Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic might consider quitting Barcelona if the Blaugrana sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.

Liverpool must improve their squad in the winter transfer window and if Coutinho leaves, then they must sign a quality star to replace the Brazilian playmaker.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for the Denmark worldwide as a possible alternative to Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, for whom they had three bids turned down during the summer.

For one, due to Arsenal's participation in the Europa League, Ozil would be eligible to take part in Barcelona's Champions League campaign after Christmas while Coutinho is already cup-tied in the competition.

"Coutinho is a friend and also a great player".

It has to be noted though that Manchester United, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are also keen on his services.

Excluding the Supercopa de España, Barca have scored a massive 40 goals in 16 games, conceding just five in that time, as they've made the ideal start to life under Ernesto Valverde. Speaking earlier this week, Arsene Wenger reiterated that the club had yet to decide if they plan to offload the World Cup victor and fellow contract rebel Alexis Sanchez in January or risk losing them for nothing at the end of the season. My relationship with him is the best I can hope for and I always say that he cares about all the players equally, giving the same level of attention to first-team players and reserves.
