Coutinho simply wants to be able to win titles which he has not done in his four and half seasons at Liverpool.

Liverpool have not won any trophy since their 2012 Carling Cup win in 2012. Since then Barcelona have won three La Liga titles, three Copas del Rey and one Champions League title.

A transfer fee would be expected to a huge stumbling block for the move as Barcelona are not ready to pay more than €85m for the Brazilian.

Liverpool, however, will be hoping to get a similar fee Barcelona is set to receive for Neymar.
