With the January transfer window just around the corner, rumours have begun circulating that the Brazilian will once again be targeted by La Liga giants Barcelona, as he was throughout most of last summer.
Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool hierarchy managed to stave off the Catalans’ advances but his goal tonight will probably only encourage Barca to lodge another bid.
Collecting the ball just inside the opposition’s half, Coutinho ignores the outside run of left-back Andy Robertson, and decides to take on the four defenders in-front of him – each of whom had no idea how to stop the little magician:
Majestic goal from Coutinho. What a player. pic.twitter.com/Z4j9VUmFMx

Regardless of who you support, there is absolutely no denying this is an absolutely majestic finish.
Do you think he’ll be a Barcelona player next month?
