It is has been rumoured that the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have all begun plotting moves for the 24-year-old.

On Sunday, the Merseyside club secured their place in next season's edition of the UEFA Champions League with their 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, and after the game Coutinho spoke about the media talk around his Liverpool future.

"Speculations are for journalists only, I've got a long contract with Liverpool," the Selecao star told ESPN Brazil.

"The whole team is playing well, today was a very important victory, next season it's the Champions League."

The player's current manager, Jurgen Klopp, has apparently also urged the midfielder to stay at the club for the long term.

"Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour," Klopp is said to have told Coutinho, according to English journalist Tony Barrett.

"Go somewhere else, to Barcelona, to Bayern Munich, to Real Madrid, and you will be just another player. Here you can be something more."
