Barcelona to make a major bid for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho this week

Barcelona are set to make a major bid for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho this week.

The Mirror says Barcelona will make a £130 million bid for Coutinho this week.

And the Catalan club are ­confident that they will land the Liverpool playmaker this time.

The Brazil star was a Barca ­target all last summer, but the Reds would not budge and refused to sell.

Coutinho, 25, made it clear he wanted to quit Anfield for the Nou Camp, but Liverpool held on to their prize asset.

The La Liga leaders will now try again – and Spanish sources ­believe that they will get their man. Liverpool have just spent a world -record £75 million on ­defender Virgil van Dijk – but boss Jurgen Klopp has said he does not have to sell to recoup those funds.
