Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho has played down rumours linking him
with a move to Barcelona, saying he is 'very happy' playing at Anfield.
The Brazil international was the subject of a transfer battle between
the Reds and the Catalan giants in August, putting in a transfer request
to try to force a move to Camp Nou. However, Liverpool bosses had no
intention of selling one of their star players and were unwilling to let
the 25-year-old leave.
Barcelona are reportedly ready to return for the attacker, but
Coutinho has insisted that he is happy with Liverpool and at the moment,
has no desire to leave the club.
"I'm playing in one of the biggest leagues in the world," he told reporters before Brazil's friendly with England.
"I'm always happy. But now it's important to concentrate on the national team. At the moment I am very happy with my life.
"Every day, I work harder than before to improve myself and become a better all-around footballer."
Coutinho missed the start of the Premier League campaign with a back
injury, but has slotted straight back into Jurgen Klopp's XI, with two
goals in five Premier League appearances.
