Liverpool are prepared to let Philippe Coutinho go to Barcelona in January, according to reports in Spain.

Barcelona made a huge effort to bring the Brazilian to the Nou Camp in the summer following Neymar's departure, with the Reds rejecting numerous bids from them.

And though Coutinho remained a Liverpool player, La Liga leaders Barca have not shifted their interest.

Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona scouts watched the 25-year-old at Wembley on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp's side were beaten 4-1 by Tottenham.

They also state that the German has neither ruled out a sale, nor denied that an agreement exists between the two clubs over his eventual transfer.
