Barcelona prepared to make new offer for Liverpool's Coutinho

Barcelona are ready to reignite their interest in Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window, although chief executive Oscar Grau insists the LaLiga leaders must sell to buy.

The Brazil global missed the start of the season with injury, but has scored three goals on his return to action for Jurgen Klopp's men.

The Catalan giants spent the summer chasing Coutinho as they attempted to fill the Neymar-shaped hole to the left of the three-peaked attack but ultimately failed, despite the Brazilian telling Liverpool of his desire to leave the club.

The new probe is the latest in a complex web of scandals that have rocked world football over the last two and a half years. Valcke was interviewed by the attorney general's representatives in Geneva on Thursday "as a suspect", the statement said.

Former Spurs forward Crooks urged Klopp to finally improve Liverpool's defence if the Reds want to keep Coutinho in their squad in the long-term.

Will Philippe Coutinho sign for Barcelona in the January transfer window?

Barcelona may have to get closer to Liverpool's £183m valuation if they are to sign the player, but until that happens, Liverpool could well do without the distraction as they prepare for their biggest match of the season so far.

The cricket board said the rock was "believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball" and had ended up inside the bus. While the stand-in skipper David Warner retweeted the post, middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell liked it.

Saga transfer of Coutinho became the center of European public attention in the transfer market last summer.

Now the Spanish publication claims that Coutinho has "an ace up his sleeve" to make that move due to an agreement he reached with Liverpool in which the Anfield club promised to let him go if Barcelona make an acceptable offer. Liverpool's position has not changed and they are furious about Grau's comments.

Coutinho would be cup-tied for Champions League games should he move to Barca but that is not expected to affect the move.
