It's fair to say that Philippe Coutinho's fine start to the season hasn't gone unnoticed. 

With Liverpool currently sitting at the summit of the Premier League table, the energetic Brazilian has been one of the club's outstanding players recently. Indeed, Coutinho has already racked up five league goals for Jurgen Klopp's rampant side. 

Unsurprisingly, then, he continued his fine form for his country as Brazil secured a comfortable 3-0 victory over Argentina on Thursday night.

Coutinho struck a fine goal to help Brazil claim yet another win in their South American World Cup qualifying group.

In fact, the source claims that Coutinho doesn't have a buyout clause in his current contract and the Catalans are yet to make contact over a potential transfer. 

It appears, then, that Liverpool are safe for now, but they won't be resting on their laurels in the pursuit of keeping Coutinho happy.

"Being in the squad is a very proud moment for me," Coutinho said. "To be able to participate in such a group, next to great players, playing a classic like this is cause for much happiness.

"Playing against Argentina has always been a big dream, every child dreams of wearing the shirt of Brazil and playing a classic like this.
