FC Barcelona are reportedly lining up a January move for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho.

The defending UEFA Champions League winners are interested in the Brazil playmaker following his impressive displays last season at Anfield.

The 23-year-old, who joined the Reds from Inter Milan in a deal worth £8.5m back in 2013, scored eight goals in 52 appearances in all competitions last term.

Having already lost star striker Luis Suarez to the Spanish giants last year, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be desperate not to lose Coutinho in similar fashion when Barca’s transfer embargo will be lifted in the New Year.
