Spanish radio show Onda Cero suggests that, while Coutinho is still on Barca’s radar with five days of the transfer window to go, Liverpool have set a deadline of Monday afternoon to finalise a transfer.

It is claimed by Sky Sports News , meanwhile, that the 25-year-old is currently “very low” at Anfield after three bids from Barcelona were knocked back.

The Brazil international has yet to feature for Liverpool this season due to illness and injury, which is expected to remain the case when the Reds face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
