Philippe Coutinho injury boost for Liverpool

And, lo and behold, during the global break, Sport have made some big claims on Barcelona's pursuit of Coutinho.

Barcelona are said to be ready to launch an stunning offer worth €120m (£106.4m, $139.3m) to convince Liverpool to part ways with Philippe Coutinho during the upcoming January transfer window.

The Brazilian was heavily linked with Barcelona in the summer.

Suarez spoke to Mundo Deportivo about whether Coutinho wanted to move to Barcelona, saying: "Obviously he must have because he's a player who has ambition".

Suarez added that Coutinho is merely showing "the ambition to take his career a step further" by wanting to join Barca, but praised his former team-mate for knuckling down to work with the Reds after his dream move failed to materialise.

"We are prepared to sign Coutinho or other players but the proposal has to come from the technical staff".

The Liverpool star last played in their 4-1 defeat to Tottenham on October 22, with a thigh problem forcing him to miss their following three matches.

The new Barcelona offer for Coutinho will be 120 million euros.

Well, "a lot" according to the man who himself completed a switch from Liverpool to Barcelona.

"Any player would want to join this club and it was difficult for him to come in the summer but he is a true professional and (because the move did not happen) he has worked hard", the Uruguay striker continued.

Despite trying to leave Liverpool, he's continued to help the team and work hard.

It remains to be seen which club he will end up joining.
