The Spanish media outlet Sport has suggested that Liverpool key man Philippe Coutinho is keen to make Barcelona switch in the future as the player is relishing the prospect of playing alongside some of his close friends at the Catalan giants.
Liverpool fans have been upset with the latest news of Coutinho’s visit to Barcelona hotel in Manchester during the week, fearing they might end up losing their star players to Camp Nou club.
And despite Coutinho was there to visit Luis Suarez and Neymar, but it did little to prevent the transfer rumours.
The Brazilian playmaker is enjoying a stellar season under Jurgen Klopp at Merseyside with his performances reportedly drawing attention from the Spanish champions.
The 24-year-old midfielder put pen to paper on a new contract back in February 2015, but his impressive stretch of form has alarmed the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain all believed to be keeping close tabs on the Brazilian magician.
Coutinho’s agents Giuliano Betolucci and Kia Joorabchian have reportedly sounded out the Catalans over a possible switch as Barcelona stand first in line for his signature.
Liverpool ace has four goals and as many assists to his name so far this season.
