Andres Iniesta: Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho won't take my Barcelona spot

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta is full of praise for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Ernesto Valverde's side have pursued Coutinho for what seems like an eternity and are set to reignite their chase for the former Inter Milan starlet with an offer in January.

This has resulted in the Catalan side renewing their interest in the player, and if the source mentioned above is to be believed, it appears that they will finally have their man in January.

With the winter window merely days away, this remnant of the summer could certainly make big news, and will also have a tremendous ripple effect.

Should the deal go through, it would be the most expensive purchase for the La Liga giants, who spent a similarly daunting amount on Ousmane Dembele following the world record departure of Neymar to PSG. He's a great player, who has been making a difference in his team, the Brazilian team.

Recent reports claim that the Reds want a staggering €150m (£137.2m, $177.7m) for their prized attacker, who would stand to earn €12m-a-year if his desired move to Barcelona comes to fruition.

"I've already talked a few times about the Coutinho question", Paulinho was quoted saying by the Mirror. "It's nice from an outside view but I have absolutely nothing to say". This could prove to be a good move for all parties involved and Mascherano could very well return to Barcelona in a coaching role once he hangs up his boots. Everyone expects great players to come to Barca.

And according to the folks over Sport, this is just the icing on the cake of the No 10's £133million move next summer.

And Oxlade-Chamberlain will continue to work on a part of his game which the German thinks was undervalued at Arsenal.
