Barcelona are ready to use Andre Gomes as a makeweight in a deal for Liverpool Football Club star Philippe Coutinho. Elsewhere, Leicester City Football Club have rejected Roma’s latest offer of $41million for Riyad Mahrez, while David Silva is planning on a return to Spain when his contract with Manchester City FC expires in the summer of 2019. Here's a full report of these transfer headlines:

Barcelona desperately want Phillipe Coutinho

Barcelona are not giving up on Liverpool's Phillipe Coutinho, and they're ready to use Andre Gomes as a part of a deal, according to the Sun. Although, Liverpool Football Club have no plans to sell their most prized asset at the moment and a $91.3m offer from Barca has already been turned down.

Phillipe Coutinho is said to be Barcelona's top transfer target to replace Neymar Jr, who recently joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record transfer fee. Andre Gomes, 25, only joined Barca from Valencia CF last year but has failed to establish himself at the Nou Camp. However, it is suggested that Liverpool Football Club are fans of Andre Gomes and the Catalan giants hope his inclusion in a move for Phillipe Coutinho could apparently increase their chances of getting the deal done.
