Liverpool FC are braced for a huge £130m bid for Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona in the coming days, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror is claiming that the Spanish giants are poised to return with a big new bid for the Brazilian playmaker as they look to try and finally land the attacker.

Barcelona were relentlessly linked with a move for Coutinho in the final few weeks of the summer transfer window, but a move failed to materialise as Liverpool FC held firm and refused to sell the attacker.

The new report comes just days after it was confirmed that Liverpool FC have parted with around £75m to complete the signing of defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

The same story says that Barcelona are “confident” that they will be able to tie up a deal to land Coutinho this time around.

Meanwhile, Coutinho will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action on Monday with a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley.

The Merseyside outfit are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and secure Champions League qualification for the second season running.
