BARCELONA will announce the signing of Philippe Coutinho at 7pm today, it has been claimed.

Philippe Coutinho is set to leave Liverpool for Barcelona

Barcelona finally look to have secured a deal with Liverpool for the Brazilian’s transfer that has reached £138million.

Liverpool have been desperate to keep hold of the midfielder but The Sun claim they have accepted Barca’s latest offer.

The Sun say Barca will officially announce the transfer at 7pm despite the Spanish transfer window not shutting until tomorrow evening.

Coutinho won’t be heading to Barca himself though as he is on international duty with Brazil.

Instead, Barca are likely to confirm they have reached an agreement with Liverpool before finalising his transfer.

Cuotinho has spent four-and-a-half seasons at Anfield in which time he made 182 appearances scoring 42 goals but finally looks set to complete his dream transfer to the Nou Camp.

The deal gives Liverpool a huge profit on a player they bought for £8.5million from Inter Milan
