  • Emre Can Liverpool

The Spanish giants have been chasing Philippe Coutinho in recent transfer windows, and his former teammate Luis Suarez has admitted he has been talking to the Brazilian, and praised his professionalism.

However, according to Catalan daily Sport, Barcelona have opened talks with Liverpool again regarding Coutinho, with the Spanish giants looking to get a deal done for around €120m plus add-ons.

Nevertheless, with the personal terms said to be agreed, it's now down to Liverpool's owner FSG being kind enough to agree a fee with Barcelona.

He also revealed what he thinks Coutinho can bring to Barcelona.

"He is a footballer, who today, plays at a very high level", he said.

"It was a hard moment [in the summer] but he's a professional and since [the transfer didn't happen] he has shown how good a player he is and the qualities he has a person".
