Barcelona prioritize Coutinho and Paulinho signing to keep Neymar content

Barcelona fear Liverpool could hold out for as much as 100m euros (£89.5m) for Coutinho who played for Barcelona's city rivals Espanyol before moving to Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013.

Liverpool, who are due to return to the Champions League this season and face a two-legged qualifying round against a soon-to-be-discovered opponent later this month, are thought to have turned down one sizeable offer in the region of £72m (€80m) already.

Some believe Barcelona want to lure Coutinho to the Camp Nou in order to make Neymar more comfortable in the dressing room, while other reports suggested that the Liverpool ace could be brought in to replace his countryman should he decide to make a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, a report from the Metro claims that officials from Barcelona have arrived in England to negotiate the deal and are ready to pay £89m to secure Coutinho.

RAC1 have gone big on the 25-year-old agreeing personal terms with the Camp Nou outfit, with the headline: "Total agreement between Barça and Coutinho".

Neymar is then said to have approved PSG's hunt for what they see as the next-best option - Arsenal main man Sanchez.

Coutinho's career has taken off in the last couple of seasons, with the Brazilian taking on the mantle of being Liverpool's leader in attack since the departure of Steven Gerrard.

The Catalans have long held an admiration of the Brazilian and have reportedly stepped up their interest in recent weeks. Last year, Philippe Coutinho made 31 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League and netted 13 times, providing 7 assists.
