Barcelona: 'We are ready to buy Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho in January'

Can'Coutinho is best I've seen

And Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau has now added more fuel to the saga after claiming that the club are prepared to make a big investment in Coutinho or any other player if the technical staff considers it necessary.

But their resolve is to be tested once more with an increased bid in January after Barca chief executive Oscar Grau indicated they are preparing an offer Liverpool can not refuse with cash from the sale of Neymar.

"We want to have the most competitive squad possible". The 25-year-old has scored in three straight matches for Liverpool and deserves attention from Europe's biggest clubs.

The Brazil worldwide also made an impressive start to this season for Liverpool, contributing to a combined four goals in his first six appearances.

Barca were thwarted in their attempt to prise Coutinho away from Anfield during the summer with Liverpool placing a reported 200 million euros ($238 million, Sh23.8 billion) asking price on the midfielder.

The heavy rainfall has been predicted due to a depression formed over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining north Bay of Bengal . Municipal workers fix a manhole during heavy rainfall in the city on Monday.

But Coutinho has shown in recent weeks just why Liverpool are desperate to keep hold of him, scoring against Leicester City, Spartak Moscow and Newcastle United.

One of the biggest problems in the last summer for Liverpool's response to Coutinho's request to be sold is looking for a substitute figure.

But Dembele has endured a nightmare start to life at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona have turned up the heat on Liverpool and will bid £120million for Philippe Coutinho again in January.
