Barcelona keen to sign former Luis Suarez team-mate from Liverpool in huge blow for Reds

Barca follow up Suarez raid with move for another Liverpool star.

Barcelona are reportedly looking into signing Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho to team him up with star striker Luis Suarez, another ex-Reds ace.

Sources in Spain say the La Liga champions could use Suarez’s influence to help smooth over the deal, with the Brazilian starlet also tipped by former club captain Steven Gerrard to leave Anfield for a bigger club.

Barcelona signed Arda Turan in the summer but could also look for further new additions in the middle of the park to replace the creativity of recently-departed club legend Xavi.
