Barcelona have upped their offer for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho to over £90million, according to The Times.
The La Liga giants have been rumoured to be interested in the Brazilian for quite some time, but have apparently stepped up their pursuit in the wake of losing Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool themselves have always taken a hard-line stance on the midfielder’s future, insisting he is not for sale no matter the offer.
