Liverpool midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, has already chosen his Barcelona shirt number, according to reports in Spain. vDiario Gol claims Coutinho wants to wear the number 7 shirt, the same number he wore during his spell at Inter Milan. The Brazilian is edging closer to a move to the Nou Camp, with Barca desperate to get their man in January. They failed with three bids in the summer, but are willing to offer in excess of £130million for the 25-year-old this month.
However, the chance of Coutinho getting the shirt, depends if current holder Arda Turan moves on. Turan looks set to depart Barcelona, having failed to appear in La Liga this term.
He has been linked with Premier League sides, Arsenal and Everton.
