Barcelona continue to pressure for the signing of Coutinho and the Liverpool midfielder already knows that he will be allowed to move to the Catalan side before the transfer window closes according to Yahoo.

The Merseyside club’s owners have told the Brazilian that they will accept his request to leave and Yahoo also claim that Barcelona will pay 160 million euros that will make him their most expensive player, beating the figure splashed out on Dembele.

In the last few hours Liverpool have shown more flexibility and willingness to negotiate than earlier in the summer when they have steadfastly refused to discuss the future of Coutinho.
