Klopp is ready to sign a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, and there are reports Liverpool wants to bring Ivan Rakitic from Camp Nou down to Anfield.
According to reports circulating in Spain, the likes of Arsenal and Juventus are also interested in signing the player.
However, last month, Don Balon made it known that the talented midfielder likes Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp – which has given Liverpool an edge over the rest.
According to Diario Gol, Ivan is aware of the fact that Phillipe could take his place at Camp Nou, and he is looking to leave the club.
Although Countiho isn’t eligible to play for Barcelona in the Champions League this season, it was suggested that Rakitic is worried the Brazilian could be the manager’s preferred option in domestic competitions.
Rakitic is approaching the final phase of his career on the pitch – while Countiho is still young, and more versatile than the Croat.
It was also added that Ivan is aware of the numerous clubs interested in his signature, but he is willing to take his time and wait till the end of the World Cup in Russia before taking any other step.
Emre Can is also likely to leave Liverpool at the end of this season. The Germany international has refused to put pen on paper for a new deal with the Merseysiders to extend his stay at the club.
