Liverpoo tracking Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool are reportedly monitoring the proceedings of Philippe Coutinho as they consider a potential approach to re-sign the Brazil international.

Coutinho is currently undecided regarding his future with the Blaugrana after struggling to make a strong impact with the team after joining them from Anfield 18 months ago.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Reds are understood to hold an interest in signing their former star and they are keeping a close eye on the player's situation at the Camp Nou.

The Spanish champions are currently lining up big-money moves for Antoine Griezmann and Neymar, and it is suggested that Coutinho could be available for a fee of around £100m this summer.

Aside from the Reds, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Brazilian and the latter could emerge as a destination, should the Blaugrana negotiate a part-exchange deal to land Neymar.

Coutinho was recently part of the Brazilian national side which beat Peru to the Copa America crown. He is currently on a vacation and it is unclear whether he will return to the club for pre-season amid doubts over his future.
