Never far away over the last 12 months, Barcelona have now suddenly been very heavily linked with a move for Coutinho since Neymar's recent exit to Paris Saint-Germain.
Given that Coutinho's contract doesn't include a release clause, Liverpool are under no pressure to sell and Barcelona cannot force the Reds to sell. "We are not in that situation".
Coutinho would be Liverpool's biggest sale if the move goes through as the move is said to be in the excess of $100m.
Coutinho will join Los Blaugranas for a base fee of €90 million (£81.6m), but there are several bonuses that could bring the deal to €120m (£108.8m).
Sky Sports News understands Barca's latest offer for the forward was €85m (£76.8m) up front, with €15m (£13.6m) add-ons.
Coutinho, a scorer of 14 goals last season in spite of spending six weeks out with an ankle injury, had signed a new deal with Liverpool in January.

Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool hierarchy are making this as difficult as possible for Barcelona to sign one of their key assets. He has been fantastic for Liverpool.
According to the report, Barcelona directors on Tuesday, August 8 arrived England to quickly seal the deal.

Earlier reports suggested Coutinho was keen on a move to the Spanish giants but had not put in a transfer request. However, Klopp is just as insistent that his star will stay.
Jurgen Klopp has said on numerous occasions that Liverpool won't sell Coutinho.
"The player wants to leave".
