Liverpool insisted yesterday that Philippe Coutinho would not be sold at any price amid reports the Brazil star has submitted a transfer request in a bid to force a move to Barcelona. Coutinho is Barcelona's top target to replace Neymar following the striker's world record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

After having two previous offers rejected, the Spanish club are believed to have increased their bid for the Liverpool forward to £90 million.

Liverpool are determined to hang onto Coutinho no matter what offer Barca make, but the 25-year-old is keen to move to the Camp Nou and reports yesterday claimed he tried to push his club into letting him leave.

A statement issued by Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool's US-based owners, said: "We wish to offer clarity as regards to our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho. The club's definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered." Liverpool open their season opener away to Watford today.
