GFX Possible Liverpool XI v Palace

Sky Sports News has been told there are now no talks ongoing between Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona over a possible Ousmane Dembele transfer.

Barcelona have around £250million to spend after Neymar's £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain but they've been frustrated in their efforts for Coutinho with Liverpool rejecting two bids so far.

"We are hopeful that they will end up wearing the Barca shirt".

Catalan newspaper Sport claims an initial fee of €100m has now been agreed between the clubs, with Barca haggling over the amount of performance related add-ons in the deal, which could reportedly amount to an extra €30m.

In the Brazilian's absence, Barcelona suffered a humiliating 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Real Madrid at the Nou Camp in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

"We are close to Coutinho and Dembele, we are discussing their conditions but we do not know when they will be sealed", Segura told Spanish television station TV3.

In full knowledge of Barcelona's situation, Dortmund are determined to get value for French playmaker Dembele, who scored 10 goals and contributed 27 assists for them last season.

Emre Can says Philippe Coutinho is one of the best footballers in the world, but his transfer saga is not distracting the team.

"In real life, you can not ask for credit, sign it and then go back to the bank after three weeks and tell them "I do not want to make money, do what you want", he said, quoted by Mundo Deportivo. I hope we stick with it in our League matches.
