European giants prepare £43m swoop to lure superstar from Liverpool

Philippe CoutinhoPhilippe CoutinhoLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left expressing their concerns today, after hearing reports that a star player could be on his way out.

French outlet Le 10 Sport state Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a huge swoop for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho, as they look to improve their side in order to compete further in the Champions League.

The 23-year-old has developed into one of the finest talents in the Premier League since moving to Anfield from Inter Milan but Liverpool’s lack of Champions League football for the second consecutive season has raised fears that star players could be lured elsewhere.

PSG’s financial prowess could also be decisive in their attempts to lure Coutinho to the French capital, whilst they also boast a number of his compatriots in Lucas Moura, Thiago Silva, David Luiz and Marquinhos.

With an offer prepared of £43m, it could tempt the Reds into a deal. However, The Liverpool Echo state that Liverpool are yet to receive a concrete offer, although PSG have made contact with the Brazilian’s entourage.

Should Coutinho leave Liverpool this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
