Coutinho hands in transfer request
Liverpool playmaker and Brazilian international Phillippe Coutinho has officially handed in a transfer request to his club.
The midfielder has expressed his desire to make a move away from Anfield and join Barcelona this summer.
Barcelona have officially rejected the transfer request. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is willing to keep hold of the player and made his intentions clear of retaining his service in the next season.
However, the Catalans have not given up their chase for the 25-year old Brazilian, as they want to bring a Neymar-replacement to Nou Camp as early as possible.
