Jurgen Klopp appears to end Barca's interest in Philippe Coutinho

Steven Gerrard definitely doesn't agree with Glenn Hoddle's Everton prediction

However, it is understood from a source close to the player that Coutinho is unhappy with the way Liverpool have handled the negotiations.

Souness feels the attacking midfielder is likely to leave Anfield, but can not see Jurgen Klopp's side challenging for one of this season's biggest two trophies even if they keep the 25-year-old.

'The rest is not for you, it is between me and all the boys, not just Phil'.

"I hope Arsenal stay strong and say "we don't need your money, we need you here to get us back where we want to be and then you can go on a free".

The move will boost Barca in their attempts to replace Neymar, after seeing a bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele rejected on Thursday.

Liverpool owners FSG - who consist of John W Henry, the Principal Owner, Chairman Tom Werner and Sports President Mike Gordon - also released a statement that Coutinho is not for sale this window.

And it seems his head has been turned with respected Merseyside football reporter Joyce revealing Coutinho has requested a transfer.

Sky Sports News understands Liverpool have so far rejected two bids from Barcelona for the Brazil worldwide, with the latest offer worth up to £90.4m.

In other news, Gremio have insisted Liverpool have made no approach for their star man Luan, according to the Express.

And the German boss is determined to show he is serious about bringing back the glory days to Anfield by retaining Coutinho, Liverpool's top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions last season when the Merseysiders finished fourth.

'He has back problems and was not in training since last Friday, ' Klopp said.
