Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident that Philippe Coutinho will remain at the club despite speculation linking him with a move away from Anfield.
Coutinho has been inspirational in the Reds' rise to the summit of the English top-flight - scoring five goals and assisting a further five in their opening 11 games of the season.
This has reportedly attracted interest from Spanish giants FC Barcelona, but Klopp does not believe that there is any danger of the Brazilian exiting the club anytime soon.
"At this moment I am not worried about anything," he said. "The players like to be here and it is our job to make sure it stays like this.
"My opinion is that he feels really well here. We all hope and think that his future is here at Liverpool. It is creating the perspective that no-one wants to leave. That is all it is about.
"If there is a club that can pay double what we pay then I will bring the player there because who am I to say 'no, no no, please don't think about the family and the kids and the grandkids and their kids', but I don't know a lot of clubs in the world who are able to do this.
"First of all before we talk about money we have to create an atmosphere in and around the club where no-one wants to leave."
Klopp also insists that, at 24 years of age, Coutinho has plenty of time on his side to continue to progress in the right direction.
"Everyone forgets he is still very young. He is 24 so he has a lot of space for improvement and development," he added.
"He is now at an age where the skills, in a mixture with his experience, gives you more consistency. With the team-mates he has around him it is getting better and better. I am sure he has only started and that is all good."
