Barcelona transfer target Philippe Coutinho will ask Liverpool to reject any bids they receive from Paris Saint-Germain as he continues to hold out for a move to the Nou Camp.

The Brazilian playmaker was a primary summer target for the Catalan giants, who tested the Reds' resolve with a mammoth £114million bid in August.

Liverpool were insistent that Coutinho was not for sale. But the Spanish club are reportedly ready to return with a £106m bid in January.

According to Sport, however, Paris Saint-Germain are also preparing their own move for the 25-year-old.

The Ligue 1 giants are hopeful of persuading the Brazilian, who only signed a new contract at Anfield last year, to choose a move to the French capital rather than the Nou Camp.

But the Spanish newspaper claim Coutinho has asked Liverpool not to sell him to PSG. '(He) has asked his representatives to ignore any offer that comes to them. One of them is from PSG,' they report.
