We will not sell Philippe Coutinho at any price — Liverpool's Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool have immediately rejected a second bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho, SkySports reported.

The Reds rubbished reports that Barcelona officials Raul Sanllehi, Oscar Grau and Javier Bordas travelled to Merseyside for negotiations.

Jurgen Klopp also recently told Barca that they are wasting their time in pursuing the player, and effectively ruled out Coutinho's exit from the club this summer.

Barcelona have seen their latest offer of €100 million - an initial €85m and then €15m in add-ons - dismissed by Liverpool.

Should Barcelona fail to tempt Coutinho to Spain, they are expected to turn their attentions to highly-rated French star Ousmane Dembele of Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp rarely goes out of his way to squash rumors like this, usually he chuckles and says something to the effect of "no comment" except his way of saying "no comment" is funny and endearing and unique.

But, in an exclusive interview with Sky Germany, Klopp said: "Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players". However, Klopp is just as insistent that his star will stay.

'Today, no player on the planet is unsellable.

Coutinho, who has himself expressed his desire to play for Blaugrana, appears to be Ernesto Valverde's first choice as Neymar's replacement at present.

Now, club legend Gerrard said of the situation surrounding Coutinho, "It's very, very difficult".

Normally such a move would pass without too much attention, but it is the transfer talk currently being generated by Coutinho which makes this decision so intriguing.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Had Liverpool accepted the fee then it would have been a record sale of the club, but it seems that money is not at the top of the mind of the club's owners.

"I don't think [Klopp's] made enough signings to challenge in the big two competitions next season", he stated.
