PSG ready to battle for Brazilian

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to battle it out with Barcelona for the services of Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

The 25-year-old ace was understood to have handed in a transfer request over the summer when Barcelona came knocking following the departure of Neymar to PSG.

However, Liverpool stood firm and rebuffed their advances despite seeing several bids in excess of 100million euros land on the table.

Barcelona are expected to continue their pursuit of the Brazil international but it's claimed they will now face competition from big-spending PSG.

Reports in Spain suggest that PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique are big admirers and have put Coutinho at the top of their wishlist as they look to become the dominant force in Europe.
