The man who represents Coutinho, Kia Joorabchian, has been snapped having lunch with PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique.
Naturally, many have speculated whether this means the Ligue 1 giants are turning their attention to our Brazilian playmaker – who of course was targeted multiple times by Barcelona during the summer.

However, Joorabchian handles a whole stable of top players, and there’s no indication which, if any, are the topic of discussion.
Coutinho made no secret of his desire to move to Barcelona in the summer, handing in a transfer request the day before the season started, but Liverpool flatly denied him his wish.
PSG look a serious force in world football right now, especially since Neymar’s record move – and it remains to be seen whether our no.10 would be equally as excited to move to Paris.
Ligue 1 is nowhere near as strong as the Premier League, but there’s no guarantee we’ll be able to offer him Champions League football next term – the way we’ve started 2017/18…
For now though, he’s ours – and we hope he can maintain his strong form and help get our season back on the right tracks.
