Liverpool news: Thiago Silva hopes to do same with Philippe Coutinho as he did with Neymar
Coutinho’s future remains up in the air after he made it clear by handing in a transfer request that he wanted to leave Liverpool.
The Merseyside club refused to back down to Barcelona’s advances by rejecting three bids.
But the La Liga giants are expected to try again in the New Year with PSG also rumoured to be interested in entering the race for his signature.
PSG are filled with Coutinho’s international team-mates in Dani Alves, Neymar, Lucas Moura, Marquinhos and Silva.
Who will start for Liverpool when they take on Sevilla?
I hope he will think well and that next year he will work with us
And the latter has revealed how he often speaks to the 25-year-old about joining him in the French capital.
"I talk a lot with Coutinho. I hope that at the end of the season or even before, it could be a nice surprise for us," Silva told Telefoot.
"I hope he will think well and that next year he will work with us."
Neymar was the latest Brazilian to join Paris in the summer in a stunning world-record fee.
And Silva hinted he is doing the same with Coutinho in regards to recruiting the Liverpool star as he did with Neymar.
"As with Neymar, I give him a lot of advice," Silva said.
"But I think the most important thing for him is to make the best decision."
