Barcelona set sights back on Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho in action for Liverpool

"We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request", Grau said.

Philippe Coutinho is once again being used by Barcelona to fluff their feathers publicly.

It's hardly surprising that Barcelona's interest in Coutinho hasn't wavered.

The Catalan giants spent the summer chasing Coutinho as they attempted to fill the Neymar-shaped hole to the left of the three-peaked attack but ultimately failed, despite the Brazilian telling Liverpool of his desire to leave the club.

El Mundo Deportivo now report Barca are "still in regular contact" with the 25-year-old, who has scored three goals for Jurgen Klopp's men this season.

Grau also reiterated that Lionel Messi has already signed a new long-term deal at the Nou Camp with the club just waiting for the right time to make if official.

Spanish constitution needs overhaul to avert Catalonia crisis
The worldwide community is also speaking up on the eve of what could be Spain's most dire crisis in recent history. Barcelona police said 350,000 people gathered, while march organizers claim as many as 930,000 people turned out.

It was a summer of speculation surrounding Coutinho's future.

Grau added: "The most important thing is the demands from the management, and we will do everything possible to meet them".

Barcelona's £95 million summer signing Ousmane Dembele was seen as a clear-cut Neymar replacement, but the French forward has since suffered a hamstring injury and will be out action until around January. The midfielder missed Liverpool's opening matches of the new season due to a reported back injury, only to score for Brazil when he joined up with the Selecao for worldwide duty.

Liverpool have now reportedly given the green light for Philippe Coutinho to leave the club in January.
