You better prepare, because Philippe Coutinho is coming (maybe).

Diario Sport is reporting that Barcelona have made contact with Liverpool officials to start discussions to sign the Brazilian attacker in the January transfer window. His market value is believed to be around €30 million, and coach Luis Enrique is apparently on board with bringing the player in as an option both to the midfield and the wings.

This rumor started with an innocent remark by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, who wrote in his biography that Barça would be one of the clubs looking to sign his former teammate. And then, Blaugrana superstar and Coutinho's personal friend Neymar Jr. publicly stated that he wants to play with his buddy at the Catalan club.

And then, as we reported last week, Coutinho has been included on Barça's shortlist for the January window. We're two months away from the window, and this story will certainly get plenty of developments.

What do you think, Blaugranes? Will Coutinho be signed? And if so, is he a good addition?
