Paris Saint-Germain will have to submit an £88m offer for Philippe Coutinho to entice Liverpool into negotiations, according to reports in France.

French outlet Le 10 Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Ligue 1 side PSG are interested in signing the Brazil international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that the French giants are prepared to submit a £70m offer to sign the South American playmaker, which would fall short of Liverpool’s valuation of their number 10.

Indeed, the French media outlet suggest that PSG would have to make an offer in the region of £88m to catch Liverpool’s attention given the Merseyside outfit’s reluctance to sell their prized asset.

The Reds relied heavily on Coutinho in the second half of the season as the former Inter Milan midfielder helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to get over the line in the top-four race.

The Brazilian netted seven times in their final 10 Premier League games to help Liverpool wrap up a fourth-placed finish and a return to the Champions League.

Coutinho finished the season with an impressive return of 13 goals and five assists to underline his status as one of Liverpool’s most-important players.
