Liverpool to hold Coutinho talks amid Barca interest

Coutinho set for fresh Liverpool contract

Liverpool are prepared to offer an improved contract to Philippe Coutinho with Barcelona keen on landing his services. Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping track of the Brazil international.

The 24-year-old has been the key performer for the Reds over the past year, and this has captured interest from a host of elite clubs.

According to The Mirror, the Reds will table a fresh long-term contract for Coutinho with Spanish giants Barcelona weighing up a possible bid for his signature.

Coutinho is currently on a £75,000 weekly package which is due to expire in the summer of 2020, but with Barca lurking around the corner, the Merseyside giants are more than willing to give him a substantial hike.

The midfielder has been in brilliant form for Liverpool this season netting four goals and three assists in all competitions.
