Liverpool reject second Barcelona bid for Philippe Coutinho - source

Steve Nicol sounds off on Liverpool as Coutinho closes in on a Barcelona move and Jurgen Klopp praises his back five.

Liverpool have rejected a second bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho, a source has told ESPN FC.

Barcelona have seen their latest offer of €100 million -- an initial €85m and then €15m in add-ons -- dismissed by Liverpool.

ESPN Deportes reported on Tuesday, citing a sources close to Barcelona, that the clubs had agreed on a deal. A source in Liverpool disputed that to ESPN FC on Wednesday, saying that Coutinho will not be sold and that the club considers the matter closed.

The follow-up bid comes after the Merseyside club rejected a £72 million offer from Barcelona last month.

Sources say Philippe Coutinho is interested in a move to Barcelona.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently said Barcelona can "save their energy" in their pursuit of Coutinho. However, the former Inter Milan man would be interested in a move to the Nou Camp, according to sources.

Coutinho signed a five-year contract at Anfield back in January, with Liverpool ensuring that no release clause was inserted.

Barcelona are awash with funds after selling Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record transfer fee of €222 million.
