Liverpool have immediately rejected a second bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho.

Barca’s latest offer for the forward was €85m (£76.8m) up front, with €15m (£13.6m) add-ons. Liverpool have reiterated their stance that Coutinho is not for sale and now consider the matter closed.

Barcelona had a £72m bid for the Brazil international rejected in July and, having sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record £200m last week, turned their attentions to pursuing the 25-year-old Coutinho, a key player for Liverpool since arriving from Inter Milan in January 2013.

Jurgen Klopp on Wednesday described Liverpool as being “in a good shape” ahead of the new season but kept quiet about Coutinho’s future.

It was reported that the Brazilian would like to move to the Nou Camp if a deal can be done amicably with Liverpool.

The playmaker signed a new five-year contract with Liverpool in January and the club remain adamant their player is not for sale.
