Coutinho to Paris Saint-Germain is Le10 Sport’s story, and they’re not letting it go.
Starting in June by claiming the French club would be prepared to spend €60m for the Brazilian star, the French magazine have reignited the whole thing in their October magazine with a whole page dedicated to the story.
With Jesé’s struggles, Edinson Cavani’s sporadic ability in front of goal and Hatem Ben Arfa’s struggles with Unai Emery, a new forward is a top priority for the Ligue 1 champions, regretting the decision of not buying one in the summer.
Le10 report a €25m bid had been rejected by Jürgen Klopp in the summer, and PSG never followed up, but the interest from Nasser Al-Khelaifi and co. is far from buried.
Philippe Coutinho’s name is said to have been brought up very recently in order to plan a new plan of attack in the winter or next summer.
The big problem is their lack of non-EU spots in the squad, which means someone will have to go, and, just like claimed last time, Lucas Moura is the man who could make way.
Coincidentally, Jürgen Klopp is apparently a big fan of the winger, and a deal involving Moura would be perfect, wouldn’t it?
Frankly, we can’t see this happening anytime soon, especially considering Coutinho’s importance to Liverpool and the fine form the Premier League side are in right now.
