Liverpool not looking to do Barcelona any favours regarding Coutinho

Barca's chase of Coutinho was one of the talking points of the summer transfer window, with Liverpool having rejected a number of big-money bids from the Catalans for their South American star.

The claim is that the La Liga leaders are willing to spend up to £130million to secure a player they courted in the summer.

Ernesto Valverde would be expected to sell off the likes of Arda Turan and a few more stars, as they look to bring in the attacker.

Adam Lallana, who made his first appearance of the season last weekend against Chelsea, is a doubt for the Reds' Saturday match against Brighton after feeling "more than he should" in his substitute appearance. The point is not to maintain a stringent and ever rigorous attachment to fourth place.

On their front page, Mundo Deportivo say that Coutinho would cost the Catalan giants €145million - around £128m - if they want him to compliment their front line this season.

Last week, the eminent designer was spotted leaving the actress's house that eventually lead to such speculations. However, for the Bollywood and cricket fraternity, a special reception will be held in Mumbai on December 21.

"I've been asked this before", he said about the prospect of the 20-year-old facing Real Madrid. We think he could be back relatively soon but, as I've said, we won't take any unnecessary risks.

"But let's not get ahead of ourselves". That's why Barcelona are so desperate to sign the player.

An interchangeable midfield is their biggest quality as Lopetegui has been gifted the luxury of four world-class creative midfielders in Isco, Cesc Fabregas, David Silva and Andres Iniesta. "He's been sidelined for a long time and training on his own, which has been tough for him. But, from what I can see, he's in a positive mood at the moment". "He's making good progress with his recovery".
