Neymar ‘urge’ Philippe Coutinho to move to PSG after Liverpool star’s agent meets with Paris

Neymar is doing his best to convince countryman and pal Philippe Coutinho to move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Liverpool star handed in a transfer request in the summer and came extremely close to sealing a move to Barcelona.

Despite three failed bids from La Liga side – the last offer coming in around £114million – Ernesto Valverde remains keen on landing the Reds midfielder.

But according to Le 10 Sport , Neymar aims to scupper his old club’s hopes of signing Coutinho by persuading his friend to join him at PSG.

The French publication believe the PSG star is already talking to Coutinho over a move, and that he’s feeding the conversations back to the club.

Neymar of course sealed a world record €222million move to the Ligue 1 giants in the summer, so PSG have previously demonstrated their financial muscle in the transfer market.

The reports come just days after Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian was pictured with PSG’s sporting director, Antero Henrique.
