Philippe Coutinho remains Barcelona’s target signing


Liverpool Philippe Coutinho has been among Barcelona’s prime targets this summer, but the La Liga club is also weighing up a move for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.

Lemar is also a target player for the Reds wherein Jurgen Klopp’s side has been reported to prepare £60 million bid for the 21-year-old footballer.

Ernesto Valverde also expressed his interest in Juventus forward Paulo Dybala who took big contributions in order to help Juve win the Serie A title last season.

Earlier this summer, the Catalans have had three bids for Coutinho but were all turned down. The fourth is potentially coming with a contract that approximately amounts to £114m. However, the English transfer window shuts down at 23:00 BST / 22:00 GMT on Thursday, August 31.

At the moment, Coutinho is on the road the Selecao ahead of a pair of World Cup Qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia (check out 12BET for the best betting odds).
