  • Barcelona wants Chukwueze to replace Coutinho at Camp Nou

Spanish champions Barcelona have reportedly slapped massive £100m transfer asking price on Philippe Coutinho for any club interested in signing the Brazilian this summer.

Coutinho arrived at the Nou Camp in excellent form, with 12 Liverpool goals in 20 season appearances before his mid-season switch past year, and Thompson said having him back could make the Reds' front three of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane even more risky for opposition defences.

Some of the Reds fans spoke with Daily Express.

He recorded 54 goals and an impressive number of assists and it has been suggested that Jurgen Klopp, who has seen his side fall agonisingly short in their Premier League title bid, has been unable to replace the South American's creativity since seeing him depart.

Though the two clubs are still a long way apart on a final fee, talks are ongoing, and the Blues are expected to earn at least €100m (£90m/$118m) from the sale of the Belgium global.

However, Chelsea intend to take their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the hope that the ban will be annulled or delayed.

Coutinho left in January 2018 in a deal worth up to £142million after failing to force a move through six months earlier.

Sarri is yet to speak to Chelsea's hierarchy regarding transfer targets for the summer, given the Blues still have the Europa League final to play on May 29 as well as the potential for them not being able to make any new additions to their squad until 2020.

Chelsea have already made one signing in Christian Pulisic, but would benefit from the arrival of Coutinho - especially with Eden Hazard likely to be on his way out.
