Liverpool have told Barcelona to pay £160million if they want to land Philippe Coutinho.
The fee would be the biggest for a player who does not have a release clause in his contract.
Jurgen Klopp’s squad flew out to Dubai on Friday night for a training camp without Coutinho, as negotiations over his move to Camp Nou continues.
Last summer, Barca went as high as £114m, but Liverpool refused to part with the Brazilian playmaker.
However, their stance has now softened, with Klopp refusing to rule out Coutinho’s departure when asked about the situation this week.
