Liverpool have reportedly informed Paris Saint-Germain that Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho is not for sale at any price.
The 24-year-old moved to Anfield from Inter in 2013, and has gone on to establish himself as a key player for the Reds in the time since.
Having scored four goals and provided three assists in just eight games so far this season, he’ll be hoping to continue to improve under Jurgen Klopp, and as reported by The Sun, Liverpool have no intention of selling him as PSG continue to show interest despite having a reported bid rejected in the summer.
It’s claimed that the Ligue 1 giants saw a £22.5m offer turned down immediately, but boss Unai Emery remains keen to try and convince the Brazilian international to move to the French capital.
However, Liverpool remain resolute in their stance on the matter and will not entertain further speculation over Coutinho’s future as they ultimately have no desire to allow the creative ace to leave Anfield any time soon.
Coutinho has a key role to play in Klopp’s side and will undoubtedly be crucial in the club’s bid to win silverware this season, and provided that Liverpool continue to make progress and work towards trophies, then there would seem little reason for the Brazilian to consider a switch elsewhere.
Liverpool currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League table after seven games, just two points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
Having already defeated Arsenal and Chelsea away from home as well as taking a point from an away trip at Tottenham, the early signs are positive that they will be capable of launching a sustained bid to compete at the top of the table.
