Coutinho wants to join one club after Barcelona star snubs Tottenham transfer

Philippe Coutinho is holding out for a move to Liverpool if at all he leaves Barcelona before the transfer window closes, I according to reports.

Tottenham made an offer for the Brazilian earlier this summer but got a negative response from Coutinho.

Barcelona have been in the market this summer looking for club to ship the playmaker to as they are eager to see his back.

The 27-year-old has fallen short of expectations during his 18 months spell at the Nou Camp.

As per talkSPORT Coutinho snubbed a move to White Hart Lane because he wants to fight for his place at Barcelona.

And talk claim Liverpool is the only team Coutinho is willing to join.

But Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to make any move for Coutinho this late into the summer.

He dashed all hope of signing his former star man earlier this summer claiming the price tag would be a draw back.

“In general, Phil Coutinho helps each team in the world, still – 100 per cent,” Klopp told ESPN FC.

“I like Phil, I think he’s a fantastic footballer and all that stuff, but it would be a big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big-money signing and it’s not our year for that.

“It’s just not possible. As I said, having him would make each team better – us included – but I really hope that he finds his luck at Barcelona.”

Coutinho is most likely playing his next game at Camp Nou unless a loan move to Italy or France materialise.
