Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move away from Anfield, with reports claiming that the Brazilian is all set to join the French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
According to Le 10 Sport, the Ligue 1 outfit are pondering a £45m bid for the 23-year-old midfielder. Furthermore, the Daily Express suggests that the Parisians have made contact with his representatives in order to lure the playmaker to French capital.
The South American star, who scored 8 goals in 26 league appearances for Liverpool this season – has been one of the Red’s stand-out performers since joining the Premier League club in 2013.

However, now his performances have attracted numerous attention from the continent, with PSG are the first to sign the playmaker.
Here’s how Twitter reacts to the rumours..
There is no good spin on Liverpool selling Coutinho. We never replace our top players well and consistently selling them makes us look weak.

PSG looking Coutinho? Only on 2 conditions:
1.We sign Gotze or similar quality
2.Lucas or Marquinos swap + cash

We should sell Coutinho to PSG but have a loan back clause for the two months of the season he bothers playing well.
