Liverpool fans are growing increasingly concerned about losing their star player after Philippe Coutinho posted an image on Instagram of him celebrating with Neymar.
The Brazilian duo were in top form once again as the South Americans recorded a thrilling 3-0 victory against Argentina on Thursday evening.
Coutinho scored another stunning goal after 25 minutes and posted the image of him celebrating with Barcelona forward and compatriot, Neymar.
According to Sport newspaper, the 24 year-old is now Barcelona’s top transfer target and he was splashed all over their front page following his latest performance for Brazil.
In a report for Sky Sports, Neymar voiced his desire to play alongside the Liverpool star earlier this season so the image of the duo sparked concern among fans on Twitter.

Coutinho has scored five goals in the Premier League already this season and has notched up a further five assists to help his side reach the top of the table.
His form has matched that of teammate Roberto Firmino who also featured as a substitute cameo for the Brazilians on Thursday evening and has been impressive for Liverpool.
Coutinho joined the Reds for just £8.5 million in January 2013 and has gone on to make 118 appearances for the Reds in the league and has been named the club’s Player of the Season for the last two successive campaigns.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
It's time people accept that Coutinho and Neymar will link up at club level at some stage. Not sure Neymar will get in ahead of Mane though. pic.twitter.com/eB1gSd88WD

And so it's started! Coutinho to Barcelona. Can we prove we're not a selling club, I think not!

I wouldn't blame Coutinho if he left us for Barcelona. That's the dream of all South-American players. All their idols played there.
