Philippe Coutinho insists he has heard 'nothing' from Barcelona about summer transfer

West Ham will host Liverpool at London Stadium this afternoon

West Ham will host Liverpool at London Stadium this afternoon

Coutinho has now spoken directly about the rumours and his comments will surely encourage Barcelona he could be tempted to move to Spain.

The Brazil global did, however, go on to say how great a club Liverpool is and stated any negotiations will come through the Anfield outfit's management first.

Jurgen Klopp's side moved a step closer to Champions League qualification on Sunday when Liverpool eased to a 4-0 win over West Ham.

Coutinho's two goals and assist for Sturridge's opener saw him pick up the Man of the Match award. So far, nothing has come to me because, if anything comes, it comes to my manager. What I have to do is focus on the pitch.

"I'm happy in the knowledge that a big club is interested in me, it's great".

And Coutinho revealed he has been told nothing about a summer switch and is completely focused on Liverpool. If the Gunners take maximum points from the two games and Liverpool defeat already-relegated Middlesbrough, then Arsene Wenger's men will play in the Europa League next season.

Liverpool are now just one game away from a return to the Champions League.

The Reds head into the game in fourth place in the Premier League table and knowing that victory in front of their home fans at Anfield would secure their place in next season's Champions League. We showed our quality and I think everybody enjoyed the game.

Rarely are the pair recognised for what a deadly duo they are when playing together, mainly because of how regularly injuries have kept them apart.
