Liverpool knocked back numerous bids from Barca for the Brazilian in the summer but there is a good chance they will make another approach when the transfer window opens again next month.
Coutinho looks to be back focused and in form following his hat-trick against Spartak Moscow in midweek, but he still hopes to get his wish of a dream switch to Barcelona at some point.
That will have to involve Liverpool backing down and agreeing to cash in, and he hopes to strike a compromise with the club that will result in him making a switch to the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
Reports claim Coutinho will not rock the boat again in January and will stay fully committed and focused on Liverpool for the remainder of the season, if they promise to let him join Barca in the summer.
Whether Liverpool agree, remains to be seen, but Barcelona will switch to other targets if the Reds stand firm and reports claim Coutinho is worried he will miss out.
