He is a popular figure in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Coutinho has enjoyed a fantastic start to the 2016/17 season, having played a key role en-route to Liverpool’s rise to the top of the Premier League pyramid.
Led by Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have come into a rich vein of form over the last few months – having put aside their disappointing displays seen under the leadership of Brendan Rodgers.
Coutinho has been a huge part of that, and the Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern think that he might just be the best in the Premier League.
It would come as no surprise, then, to learn that the Merseyside giants are keen to ensure that the Brazilian continues to turn out in a red shirt for the foreseeable future…
According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are looking to tie Coutinho down to a long term deal at Anfield – but will be forced to give him a pay rise as they look to ward off interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs. They note, in particular, that Barcelona are keen on the Brazilian playmaker.
Despite concerns surrounding Barcelona’s interest, the Times, interestingly, are reporting that Liverpool are confident that they will be able to fend off foreign interest – and ensure that Coutinho remains a Liverpool player.
This news has delighted the Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern, many of whom consider him to be the Reds’ best player.
Coutinho has been in fine form so far this season, having already picked up 5 goals and 5 assists in the Premier League.
