BARCELONA could look to sign Atletico Madrid frontman Antoine Griezmann next summer instead of Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

That is according to Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

Coutinho wanted to go to Barcelona in the summer but Liverpool rejected all offers for him.

Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau sparked rumours earlier this week by saying they could go back in for Coutinho in the January transfer window.

However, Balague cannot see a deal happening in the winter, stating Liverpool would not entertain any offers until the end of the season.
