Fifa has launched an investigation into England striker Rhian Brewster's claims that a team-mate was racially abused during the Under-17s World Cup.

Brewster says he has been racially abused five times during his career and that in the 5-2 final win over Spain a team-mate was targeted by an opponent.

World football's governing body Fifa says it received a complaint from the Football Association over the incident.

Liverpool are yet to receive a new bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho, but reports in Spain claim a renewed offer for the midfielder is imminent.

Liverpool are now braced for another attempt to secure a deal this month. Liverpool rejected three offers, and a transfer request from the Brazilian, before the start of this season.
