Barcelona officials are in London trying to accelerate a deal to sign Philippe Coutinho, according to Spanish publication Sport.

The Camp Nou giants have been linked with a swoop for the Brazilian worldwide for a while now and a move to seal the deal has been made by the Barcelona Chiefs.

However, Sport have added further details in that although Liverpool consider Coutinho to be non-transferable, their resolve could be tested with a €100m bid if Barcelona are willing to put that much on the table.

La Liga giants Barca have launched their final offensive to land the Brazilian and negotiations are reportedly moving forward, but Liverpool do not intend to sell for less than €100million (£89.5m). The two main daily sports papers led with reports that FC Barcelona were "close" to signing both the midfielders and although Liverpool have made it clear that their little magician is not for sale, suggestions are that an offer of over 100 million euros, along with the player's desire to move, could make it a reality. Wages are also an issue as it's noted that there is no agreement on personal terms yet with Coutinho's hefty demands, and so there certainly seems to be a long way to go before any deal is reached.

Aside from an injury setback which disrupted his form after the turn of the year, Coutinho had another impressive campaign last year, scoring 14 goals while providing nine assists in 36 appearances in all competitions as he was an influential creative hub for the Reds.
