FC Barcelona are reportedly lining up a fresh bid for Brazil international midfielder Philippe Coutinho, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The La Liga giants, who have won all seven of their opening league games so far this campaign, conceding just twice, were heavily linked to landing the Liverpool star during the previous summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old, who has 29 international caps for his country, has scored three goals and provided an assist in six appearances in all competitions for The Reds so far this season.

Coutinho, who arrived at Anfield back in January 2013 following his reported £8.5m switch from Serie A side Inter Milan, has netted 45 times in 187 games overall for Liverpool.

After failing with three bids during the summer window, the report suggests Barca are plotting a new offer worth up to €110m (£97m) ahead of the January market.

Despite handing in an official transfer request earlier this term following the Spanish side’s interest, Coutinho has since hit form for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring three goals in his last three outings.
