Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has made it clear that he enjoys working under manager Jurgen Klopp amidst rumours of imminent transfer bids from PSG and Barcelona.

The Brazil international, who turned 24 on Sunday, will soon be heading home for a well-deserved break after Dunga's side were surprisingly knocked out of the Copa America Centenario by Peru.

This after Coutinho netted an impressive hat-trick in the 7-1 triumph over Haiti, sparking renewed speculation over his future at Anfield.

However, when quizzed over his future at Liverpool, Coutinho appeared to indicate his desire to stay at the Merseyside club.

"I am grateful for everything Liverpool has done for me," Coutinho said. "Am I happy there working under Klopp? It's clear, he's great."

Coutinho joined the Reds from Inter Milan in the January transfer window of 2013, after a reported transfer fee of £8.5m was agreed by the two clubs in question.

He has made 107 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League, netting 21 goals in the process.
