Barcelona will reportedly try again to sign Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho and will make a bid of €120 million in January.

The Brazilian, who was wanted by Barcelona in the summer, had to stay put at Liverpool, despite submitting a transfer request.

The reports come in just days after Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian was spotted speaking to PSG Sporting director Antero Henrique.

"I've spoken with Coutinho because I have a good relationship with him", Suarez said.

While the statement won't make Coutinho any cheaper, Barcelona is still after the Brazilian.

With the winter transfer window soon approaching, the saga revolving around Coutinho is taking a new turn every day.

Suarez played alongside Coutinho for Liverpool before the former opted to depart in a £75m move to Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

Nevertheless, a move to Barcelona in January from Liverpool continues to be mooted by the Catalan press. Though they remain in the market for the player with another bid possible.

The Brazil global was linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window as the Catalan side looked to reunite the attacking midfielder with Suarez at Camp Nou.

Coutinho is now with the Brazil squad preparing for friendly matches against Japan and England.
