But Jurgen Klopp is adamant the playmaker is going nowhere – and Barnes believes the Reds will maintain their strong stance.
Speaking on the Weekend Sports Breakfast, the Liverpool legend said: “It wouldn’t surprise me if he actually stays.
“I don’t think Coutinho is the type of player if the transfer request is rejected and his move doesn’t come to fruition that will spit his dummy out and won’t perform. He will perform.
“It is 100 per cent up to Jurgen Klopp and Jurgen Klopp is saying that he is not for sale and he is not going at any price so it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he stays and still performs.”
