Report: Coutinho declaration puts him on another collision course with Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp will now be hoping that Coutinho is available for selection when Liverpool host Southampton on Saturday.

Barca made three bids for the playmaker but a move didn't materialise as the Reds held firm.

In Griezmann's case, it seems inevitable that the France striker will leave Atlético next summer and Barcelona have already expressed their interest to the player directly. Liverpool's new winger has seven goals and two assists through 11 Premier League games, and has added a further four goals in the Champions League.

Everyone loves a good Brazilian winger, and it's even better when they emerge as a huge talent playing for a smaller Premier League club like Watford.

At Sunday's training session it was unclear whether Coutinho could come back into the side in his usual role on the right or deeper in central midfield, where coach Tite had planned to use him against Japan. In three years at Anfield, Suarez won just one trophy-the League Cup in 2012, which is considered to be the least valuable by many in England. Well the former Manchester City striker decided to move to Leicester and that was the last we heard from him. Gomes is a versatile talent who can play anywhere in the midfield and also in the attack if needed.

Both Coutinho and Ajax teenager Matthijs De Ligt are key targets for Barca in January and Mundo Deportivo claims they will free up both funds and space in their squad for the duo by moving on midfielders of Rafinha, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan. However, any deal for the talented Alli will cost a fortune as Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, is known to be a tough negotiator and will not sell the player for anything less than £150 million.
