Liverpool have been linked all year with a move for Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, however, they have been consistently frustrated in their attempts to sign the Brazilian wizard and may have to turn their attention elsewhere.
Which begs the question, who?
Here are the three obvious candidates for Barcelona to concentrate on in the event that they fail to land Coutinho.
A world-class player that on his day can change a game at the drop of a hat, however, he appears to have his heart set on Real Madrid, which the Barca faithful are quite aware of.
He is set to become a free agent and would probably jump at the chance to sign for Barcelona, but he has played for Real Madrid and that may be just too big a hurdle to overcome.
Fast becoming a superstar in his own right, his performance against Ireland was a sight to behold and you can be certain that the Spanish giants are scouting him out, though Tottenham would put up a battle royal to keep hold of the Dane.
So there you have it, three top class players that could probably do just as good a job at Barcelona that Coutinho could do, if not better.
