Coutinho's future has been the talk of Anfield ever since the summer when the Reds rejected offers in excess of £100m. And now it seems the deal is done if Nike's website is to be believed.

A hack is the most likely explanation for the rogue advert although more pessimistic Reds' supporters believed it may have been something mistakenly published before Coutinho has completed a deal in January.

The transfer window is set to open again on Monday, when Virgil van Dijk will complete his £75m move to Liverpool from Southampton. And judging by Nike's website, Liverpool are involved in another high-profile transfer with Coutinho leaving for Spain.

Spanish newspaper Sport claim a meeting is being set up on January 3 by Barcelona to discuss a transfer.
