Coutinho happy at Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho says he is happy at Liverpool, amid reports linking him with a move to Barcelona in January.

The Catalan club tried to sign Coutinho last summer and are thought to be planning a new effort to bring the midfielder to the Nou Camp in the January transfer window.

However, the Brazilian insists he is happy with life on Merseyside and is enjoying playing in the Premier League.

“I’m playing in one of the biggest leagues in the world,” said Coutinho, who is currently on international duty with Brazil ahead of the friendly against England at Wembley on Tuesday.

“I’m always happy. But now it’s important to concentrate on the national team. At the moment I am very happy with my life.”
