Apart from Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, he’s arguably been the best player in thePremier League this season.
He’s helped Liverpool to a point behind Antonio Conte’s men at the top of the table, played a key role in the league’s best attack and also starred for Brazil.
Yes, it’s Philippe Coutinho, the man who Liverpool fans don’t even want to contemplate losing at any point.
But, just like Luis Suarez before him, it appears the midfielder’s performances have caught the eye of Barcelona with numerous reports that the La Liga giants are planning a move.
So the last thing the Anfield faithful will want to see is their man adding fuel to that fire himself.
That’s exactly what’s happened, though, as Coutinho has been filmed by FourFourTwo naming current Barcelona trio Neymar, Lionel Messi and Suarez as the top three players in the world.
Overlooking the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and several others, the Brazilian is quick to name the Nou Camp stars at the top of the pile.
But seeing their star man admit his love Barcelona’s stars is unlikely to have Liverpool fans sitting comfortably.
