Philippe Coutinho isn't letting speculation about his club future distract him

With the possibility of Philippe Coutinho arriving at the Camp Nou looking bleak, Barcelona will be bidding for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, as an alternative, according to Marca.

There's still hope in Barcelona that Liverpool will come to the table, but it's stated they'll do so after making all their own signings, ready to "play" with the efforts of the Catalan club. Furthermore, it leaves Liverpool scrambling around to find a replacement with the Premier League transfer window due to slam shut at 11pm.

Liverpool are weighing up a reported £75m bid for Monaco's Thomas Lemar as they make contingency plans for Coutinho's potential departure, and could also move for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after he rejected a £40m switch to Chelsea.

This prompted Coutinho to hand in an official transfer request, while he has been missing from the side for the start of the season, citing a dubious back injury as the reason. He contributed 14 goals and nine assists in all competitions and the void he is set to leave in the Merseysiders' first team could be near impossible to fill. If it closed in July, Coutinho would have continued playing and it would have been gone. "My thing is in the pitch, that's my concern".

"I told him that I want him to go to wherever he would feel happiness and joy", Tite told reporters.

"I have to know my limits".

"I don't have an opinion on what is best for him". And fair. And justice is that he can be happy. "He'll decide it. But the Brazilian squad won't lose him".
