Liverpool owners say Philippe Coutinho is not for sale amid Barcelona interest

Barcelona's plans to sign Philippe Coutinho to fill the void left by the departure of Neymar appear to be dead in the water after Liverpool released a statement on Friday announcing they will not sell the Brazilian playmaker at any cost.

Fenway Sports Group had earlier released a statement on the Liverpool website saying that the club's stance was definitive.

Spurs are likely to be just as hard to deal with as Liverpool, although there is a belief that Daniel Levy has a selling price for every player, even if it is likely to be over £100m given that the White Hart Lane club got over £50m for Kyle Walker.

Barcelona have reportedly seen two bids for the 25-year-old rejected and certain outlets had claimed that the La Liga outfit had already planned an unveiling ceremony for Coutinho.

Liverpool has denied claims that Philippe Coutinho has handed in a transfer request.

While they are not alone in being troubled by player power - even Barcelona could not keep Neymar, and Arsenal are struggling to hold on to Alexis Sanchez - the stakes at Anfield are higher.

Liverpool open their 2017-18 campaign with Saturday's league clash against Watford at Vicarage Road and there are doubts over whether Coutinho will be available for the match, with him having been receiving treatment this week for a back issue.

In the press conference, Klopp was asked about trying to keep Coutinho happy.

The former Inter star has been heavily linked with Barcelona and is reported to have been the subject of a bid in the region of £100million from the Catalans, which was rejected.

"From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go". That is set in stone. A price at which we are ready to give in.

He scored 13 goals and assisted seven more in 31 Premier League appearances last term, helping Jurgen Klopp's side finish fourth.
