The 20-year-old arrived from Red Star Belgrade in January of 2016, but is not currently involved in Liverpool's first-team setup and whose agent has suggested he might benefit from a loan.

On their front page, Mundo Deportivo say that Coutinho would cost the Catalan giants €145million - around £128m - if they want him to compliment their front line this season. The point is to try to win the league.

'Should we stop thinking about him in the moment just because there are more stories about him in the newspapers in Spain?' Harry Kane is second in the list with 10 goals.

Of course, they still have Lionel Messi and as Barcelona have shown so far this season, sometimes that's all you need.

While the main Valencia transfer target this winter is Sandro Ramirez from Everton, they could also turn to Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura.

"I really see Marko in the future playing for Liverpool".

Ernesto Valverde would be expected to sell off the likes of Arda Turan and a few more stars, as they look to bring in the attacker.

The Argentina international initially wanted Barcelona to break the bank for PSG midfielder Marco Verratti.

Emre Can, Leroy Sane and Leon Goretzka are now establishing themselves in a well-oiled unit and the experience of Toni Kroos, Matts Hummels and Thomas Muller has ensured a smooth transition.

Former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha is close to returning to Mexican football with Cruz Azul.

An interchangeable midfield is their biggest quality as Lopetegui has been gifted the luxury of four world-class creative midfielders in Isco, Cesc Fabregas, David Silva and Andres Iniesta.

Rafinha could leave Bayern Munich after falling behind Joshua Kimmich in the pecking order.
