Liverpool reject third Coutinho bid

Liverpool have rejected a third bid from Barcelona for playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Reports put the latest bid at 125 million euros, as the Spanish club continue to seek a replacement for Coutinho's Brazil team mate Neymar, who they sold to Paris St Germain for a world record 222 million euros earlier this month.

Manager Juergen Klopp has previously insisted that the 25-year-old would not be sold, although last weekend he said that if Liverpool's owners decided to accept a bid there was nothing he could do about it.

Coutinho will miss Saturday's match at home to Crystal Palace because he still has a back injury, Klopp told reporters on Thursday.
