Barcelona could make a bid for Chelsea’s Willian in January, if Liverpool continue our refusal to enter negotiations about selling Coutinho, according to the Daily Mail.
Our no.10 is very publicly their primary target, but if Liverpool flatly reject any further bids, as we did in the summer, then Barca won’t be able to get their man – considering there’s still over four years to run on his contract…
As a result, they’re eyeing up alternatives, one of which is Antonio Conte’s Willian.
The 29-year-old scored a fluke goal against Liverpool at the weekend, but is actually not highly rated by Blues supporters who cannot understand his poor goal return since arriving in 2013.
Liverpool fans would also be pleased if Barca do target Coutinho’s international team-mate, as it would increase the chances of Phil staying on Merseyside massively.
This term, our 25-year-old’s campaign has been stunted by injuries, but he’s still produced many moments of genius.
When Jurgen Klopp can select him in midfield, with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah ahead, we’ve shown we can tear sides to shreds.
Long may it continue.
