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

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

The Spanish outfit made several attempts to snag Coutinho during the recently closed transfer window, but the Reds held on firmly, rebuffing all offers that came their way.

"We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request", Grau said.

Barcelona's pursuit of Coutinho escalated after Paris Saint-Germain finalised the world-record breaking €222m (£198m) signing of Neymar, activating a release clause in the forward's contract to take him from the Nou Camp.

Liverpool have agreed to allow Philippe Coutinho to finally secure his dream transfer to Barcelona next year, if you choose to believe today's reports.

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

Yet, the club CEO admitted that Barcelona might need to cash in on some players to fund such an investment - although pointing that they will have time to do so until the summer as the financial year won't end until July.

One player expected to leave in the New Year is Andre Gomes; the Portugal worldwide was set to join Tottenham on transfer deadline day and Sportsmail understands that move will be resurrected in January.

The Catalans could be back in January however and Grau says the club stand ready to chase players the coaching team want. We will study it if it necessary. "If that is the case, we will look for means to generate income".
