From 30 appearances in La Liga this season, Coutinho has scored only five goals and has contributed with two assists.

Ernesto Valverde has still relied on the ex-Inter Milan youngster throughout the course of the campaign, but if reports are to be believed, it seems the manager is willing to sanction the player’s departure.
