Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho wants to join Barcelona

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is a man in demand if recent transfer rumours are to be believed.

According to the Spanish outlet Sport, the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the Premier League midfielder and could make a move during the summer transfer window.

Coutinho has been sensational for club and country over the last 12 months and is rightly being noticed by the European elite.

Sport claim that the Brazilian midfielder wants a transfer to Barcelona and Liverpool are afraid of losing their star player. As per their report, Coutinho’s representatives offered him to Barcelona last year, but the Catalan club turned down the chance to sign him because of the asking price and other priorities.

Sport also adds that Coutinho has a contract until 2020, but the Anfield outfit are ready to offer an improved contract right now. It will be interesting to see how Coutinho responds to the new contract offer, if it arrives.

Coutinho being linked with these clubs is not a surprise at all. Coutinho has been Liverpool‘s best player for a while now and is arguably the best player in the Premier League on current form.

Furthermore, PSG are monitoring the Brazilian as well and Sport are claiming that they are ready to make a crazy offer in order to sign him. With Real Madrid interested as well, it could well turn into a bidding war this summer.
