Cape Town - Liverpool have reportedly put a £67m price tag on attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho after it emerged he is a 'priority target' for Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG are said to have had a £22m offer offer for Coutinho turned down before the start of the 2016/17 campaign, but they are still interested in pursuing the 24-year-old.

The Parisians, who supposedly also failed in a bid to sign Barcelona's Neymar prior to this season, remain keen to bring the Brazil international to the club at the end of the current campaign.

The playmaker has hit 33 goals in 155 appearances since arriving at Liverpool in 2012/13, and is now considered an established Premier League star under Jurgen Klopp.

Le 10 Sport claim that the player is a 'priority target', but the wealthy French champions will have to cough up £67m for the Reds to consider letting him go.

The Rio de Janeiro-born star has been one of the top performers in Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring four goals and registering four assists in 10 league appearances.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will face Watford at Anfield on Sunday in a EPL clash hoping to claim maximum points.

Kick off is at 16:15.
