Moving centrally grants Coutinho the freedom to feed the runs of those ahead of him as well as initiate the intricate link up play in and around the opposition box- traits that makes him capable of getting the best out of Sturridge.

The Brazil global did, however, go on to say how great a club Liverpool is and stated any negotiations will come through the Anfield outfit's management first.

The Brazil global will be boosted by his man-of-the-match performance with two goals and an assist in last weekend's must-win game at West Ham.

And Origi, on target in Sunday's 4-0 win at West Ham, is expecting a cup final atmosphere at Anfield on Sunday despite a recent home record of just two points from three games. "What I have to do is concentrate on what the pitch", Coutinho said.

While things can of course change quickly in football, it seems as though Coutinho doesn't fit what Barca what in the more immediate future, and so a move away from Liverpool this summer looks to be more unlikely than many people believe.

"I'm happy to know that a great club has an interest, it's cool, for the recognition of my work, what I have to do is keep working hard. He's there in the big moments and for me, he's a joy to play with".

And Coutinho revealed he has been told nothing about a summer switch and is completely focused on Liverpool.

'Liverpool is a great club and we have to put Liverpool back in the Champions League'. We showed our quality and I think everybody enjoyed the game.

86 - The duo played together until Sturridge's substitution in the 86th minute, with the England global still yet to complete 90 minutes in the league this term.

While Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has had a dig at champions Chelsea claiming they had it easy this season without European football.
