LIVERPOOL OWNERS FSG have issued a hands-off warning to Barcelona over Philippe Coutinho but the player has responded by handing in a transfer request.

Despite rumours of a €100 million offer from the Catalan club this week, Liverpool appeared to clarify the situation earlier today when they released this statement on the club’s official website today, FSG say:

“We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho.

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.”

However, multiple reports by sources close to the club are emerging this afternoon that the player has handed in a transfer request and wants to leave Liverpool.

The Brazilian submitted the formal request by email at around 1pm today.
