Barcelona are ready to go all out to sign another replacement for Neymar - and Philippe Coutinho is hoping it will be him.

Catalan titans Barca saw Brazilian superstar Neymar join Paris Saint Germain for a world record £197million this summer.

They plucked for Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund, in a £97m deal, but he suffered a hamstring injury in just his fourth appearance.

Barca had been desperate to sign Liverpool attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho but were rebuffed by the Reds during a long window saga.
