London, June 11 (IANS) Brazil and Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho said he is focused on the national football team and denied thinking about a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain during the next season.

Coutinho, 23, is one of the stars in the Copa America, played in the United States, and on June 8, scored a hat-trick against Haiti in a game which ended 7-1, reports Efe.

The Liverpool player has been linked to a possible move to Paris-Saint Germain.

"As far as I know, there's no offer. I'm here with the national team, and this subject is for my representatives," Coutinho said in a statement.

"More important for me is to be here, focused on the national team and having a good tournament. That's where my head is," he said.

Coutinho was the most outstanding player of Liverpool last season, where he was named the club's player of the year.
