Liverpool have set their asking price for Philippe Coutinho ahead of the January market.

The Liverpool Echo says Barca have been told only £135million will get them near Coutinho in January, according to reports in Spain.

Barca are continuing their pursuit of the Anfield star, with Coutinho still their No.1 target to replace Andres Iniesta, the club captain now in the twilight of his career.

Barca chiefs saw three bids rejected during the summer transfer window, all of which were heavily-tailored around potential add-ons.

Meanwhile, El Mundo Deportivo says agent Kia Joorabchian is working as a go-between between the two clubs, and has told Barcelona that Liverpool would be willing to sell for a fee totalling £135million in January
