Barcelona have made a third offer to Liverpool for Philippe Coutinho.
That’s according to a report by Goal.com, in which it is claimed that the Catalans have upped their previous offer to €130m for the Brazilian international.
The Spanish club have already seen two bids immediately rejected by Liverpool before Coutinho went on to hand in a transfer request last week in order to try and push through a move.
But FSG released a club statement on Friday last week insisting that no offers would be considered for the ex-Inter Milan midfielder as they look to keep him at Anfield for the 2017/18 season.
Barcelona appear to have decided to further test Liverpool’s resolve by pushing their offer over the £100m mark in order to try and secure the transfer of the twenty-five year old.
There is plenty of unrest at the Camp Nou among supporters after they saw their side comprehensively beaten 3-1 on Sunday evening and then 2-0 in the return leg at the Bernabeu by rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish super cup.
Coutinho’s fellow Brazilian Paulinho has been signed already this week, but the La Liga club want to make a statement for the future by signing the Liverpool midfielder.
Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele is also being heavily pursued.
