Fenway Sports Group, which owns the club, released a statement shortly thereafter saying that no offers for Coutinho would be considered despite his request to leave.
Barca saw two bids swiftly batted away for the 25-year-old, the last of which was tabled in midweek and totalled €100 million.
Liverpool have already rejected an offer of €80 million (around £72 million) from the Catalan giants for the attacking midfielder/winger last month, but Barça have ramped up their pursuit of the Brazilian footballer after they sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

"I have to accept decisions from owners, that's how it is, and sometimes from players, but for this moment I just have to concentrate on my team".
Klopp, however, is determined to show he is serious about bringing back the glory days to Anfield by retaining Coutinho, Liverpool's top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions last season when the Merseysiders finished fourth.
