Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have stated that no offers will be considered for Philippe Coutinho during the transfer window.

The Brazil international is reportedly a key target for Barcelona, who are said to be ready to pay in excess of £100million in order to bring him to Camp Nou.

However, a statement issued via the club's official website has made it clear they fully expect Coutinho to be a Liverpool player when the transfer window closes at 2300BST on August 31.

"We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho," FSG said.

"The club's definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes."
