Both PSG and Barcelona are reportedly chasing the Liverpool star.

Quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has insisted he is happy playing for Jurgen Klopp at the club despite rumours of an exit.

The Brazilian midfielder enjoyed another fine campaign this past year, showing significant improvement under Klopp since he took charge.

Coutinho has subsequently been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield, with both Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona thought to be big admirers of Liverpool’s key man.

Neither have made a move for him as yet, and indeed the club have been adamant that he will not be sold.

Nonetheless, the rumours have persisted, but Coutinho has moved to quash them by reaffirming his commitment to Liverpool.

“I am grateful for everything Liverpool has done for me. Am I happy there working under Klopp? It’s clear, he’s great,” the Liverpool Echo reports him saying.

Despite insisting he is happy at Liverpool, it would be interesting to see if Coutinho could be swayed by an offer should one come in.

The prospect of playing for PSG or Barcelona would be tempting to say the least, simply because of the big wages they can offer.

Beyond that, the fact that both can promise title challenges and regular Champions League football - neither of which the Reds can offer right now - are two other aspects that may one day tempt him into leaving as Luis Suarez did with Barcelona.
