Philippe Coutinho: 'Liverpool have helped me grow as a player'

Philippe Coutinho: 'Liverpool have helped me grow as a player'

However, the Brazil global stayed at Anfield with Liverpool rejecting multiple offers from Barcelona to part ways with his services.

Barcelona will reportedly not offer anything higher than €100 million and could look elsewhere should Liverpool prove to be hard to deal with.

"I have told him, eh". When I arrived, I had only been seen or thought of as a playmaker. "I can't tell you what he said to me, of course, because it's something that's very personal, but we've talked", Moreno admitted during an interview with The Guardian.

"He's my friend and always will be".

"I don't know what will happen".

"It's a privilege. It's an honour to share a dressing room with him".

He remarked: "I have become stronger here in every way. Things with the ball, touches, dribbles".

Reports have not gone away about La Blaugrana returning in January with a supposed £135m offer for Coutinho's services after the current La Liga leaders saw four bids rejected for him in the summer.

Barca are offering Coutinho a deal worth €25m-a-year, which would make him the second highest paid player at the club behind only Lionel Messi.

With the Catalan media currently going through one of their periods in which every conceivable big name Barcelona target gets a big mention, it's now the turn of Arsenal's German star.

"But I can't interfere".

Coutinho, who has been heavily linked with a switch to Barcelona, was asked about the initial bedding in period on Merseyside following his move from Italy, and he explained what parts of English life he had to get used to from the off. Every fan, everyone who watches Liverpool, everyone who understands football knows that. "But we're Liverpool. We have a great squad and we won't stop being Liverpool".
