"We are [financially] prepared to sign Coutinho or any other player in January", Barca CEO Oscar Grau said at a news conference on Wednesday. "Money, is there. What we want is to have the best team possible".

El Mundo Deportivo now report Barca are "still in regular contact" with the 25-year-old, who has scored three goals for Jurgen Klopp's men this season.

The Brazil worldwide also made an impressive start to this season for Liverpool, contributing to a combined four goals in his first six appearances.

"I don't think it's going to happen in January, I don't think they've got intention of making it in January", Balague told Sky Sports, per the Express.

Barcelona eventually made multiple offers to sign the Brazilian ace and only abandoned the pursuit on deadline day after the Merseysiders asked them to pay €200m to complete the transfer.

One of the biggest problems in the last summer for Liverpool's response to Coutinho's request to be sold is looking for a substitute figure.

Yet with the Reds seventh in the Premier League, and showing little evidence that the defence is on the rise, there will always be a part of Coutinho that has eyes on a move to the Camp Nou.

Liverpool, however, strongly denied this version of events and insisted that their definitive stance that Coutinho would end the summer transfer window at Anfield had never changed.
