Barcelona could announce the signing of Philippe Coutinho this week, according to fresh reports from Spain.
Coutinho has been on Barcelona’s radar ever since the summer when three bids were rejected by Liverpool.
But Barcelona are ready to go in again and are confident of signing him this month.
According To Don Balon the deal could be agreed in a matter of days and the signing made official this week.
The transfer window opened on Monday and Barcelona are expected to make an offer over £100m with some talk it could be as high as £150m.
Coutinho was absent from Liverpool’s New Year’s Day win over Burnley with Jurgen Klopp claiming he was injured.
But Nike have ramped up the transfer talk by advertising Barcelona shirts with Coutinho printed on the back on their website.
And AS have reported that a five-year deal has been agreed between Barcelona and Coutinho since the summer and all that is missing from the deal is Liverpool’s sign off.
Barcelona have been in brilliant form this season and have built up a strong lead in La Liga.
But Ernesto Valverde wants Coutinho signed as soon as possible so he can adapt to the Camp Nou demands and help them push on and improve further.
Barca lead Atletico Madrid by nine points after 17 games and have a 14 point lead over Real Madrid.
Coutinho meanwhile has impressed this season despite failing to get his move in the summer.
The 25-year-old has scored seven times in the Premier League and another five in the Champions League.
Klopp insists he’s staying put despite the huge £75m outlay on defender Virgil van Dijk last week.
Ex-Ivorian Star Emmanuel Eboue Is Dead
SPORTS BREAKING NEWS! Ex-Ivorian Star Emmanuel Eboue Is Dead
The former Ivorian International star, Emmanuel Eboue, is dead. Emmanuel Eboue is reported to have committed suicide in London.
Eboue, is believed to had struggled with long-term depression. He was found dead in his sister’s North London home according to Police.
Ex-Ivorian football star Emmanuel Eboue did not leave a note behind and he was found hanging in the room on a fan hook, Police said in a statement.
Police declined to comment whether it was suicidal or a perpetrated act but assured the public an investigation is ongoing.
Emmanuel Eboue had received offers of legal advice in his bid to overturn a court ruling which was set to leave him homeless in the wake of his bitter divorce.
The ex-Arsenal defender, 34, previously spoke to the Mirror of his fears for the future following his acrimonious split from wife Aurelie.
The former Galatasaray star a fortnight ago revealed how he lost all his fortunes, going from a rich football star to a poor man who was contemplating suicide.
Eboue made millions of pounds at Arsenal and then more than £1.5million a year at Turkish side Galatasaray. However, the football star said he had lost all he had to his wife Aurelie who he claimed also handled his finances, adding that “whatever she told him to sign he signed.
After their divorce, the court awarded all his fortunes to his wife in a divorce settlement and he was ordered to also give up his house in London to the ex-wife.
The 34-year old and his wife lived there before he bought a mansion – which Aurelie has now put on the market.
Eboue had also surrendered his expensive cars to his wife, and before his death, he relied on London public transport. He often slept on a mattress on his living room floor.
As if all these were not enough, Eboue was also said to be suffering from an undisclosed medical problem.
The 34-year-old had served a one-year ban for failing to pay a former agent but got back into football recently, agreeing a deal with Cypriot side Turk Ocagi Limassol.
However, his move to Cyprus was not plain sailing and his agent Tekin Bircini said his client was
facing ‘medical problems’.
