However, Sport are reporting that French club Paris Saint-Germain are leading the race for the Brazilian and that Coutinho has already "said yes" to the move.
He's also reportedly frustrated by the lack of quality in Ligue 1, as he targets a return to La Liga this summer.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi claimed in June that he doesn't want any more "celebrity behaviour" at the club - and said the "doors are open" for any player who doesn't comply.

Sky Sports and Guardian reporter Fabrizio Romano posted on social media that Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona is nearly a done deal as per the agreement between the clubs and player a month ago.
The expectation would be that Barcelona would have to pay a substantial transfer fee and send Coutinho and another player as part of the move to make it work.
"I prefer that Neymar does not return to Barca".
For now, though, Neymar's entourage remains coy on giving any signs away that a Barcelona move could be on the cards. He will now go to Belo Horizonte to watch the Copa America Semi Finals between Brazil and Argentina. As per reports, Ousmane Dembélé, Ivan Rakitic, Malcom, and Samuel Umtiti will also be the next names in the player sales.
