According to Ed Malyon of The Independent, Coutinho and his representatives will approach "key Liverpool figures" to talk over the summer's events after he handed in a transfer request and was the subject of three bids that were all rejected.
Sky Sports reported the most recent of those offers, valued at £113 million, was quickly turned down, illustrating just how adamant the Reds are about keeping hold of their playmaker.
Malyon reported that Coutinho and his representatives are keen to blame Barcelona for much of the ill will that's developed of late, including the idea to email his transfer request.
A back injury has meant Coutinho has been sidelined for the beginning of the Premier League campaign, but the Telegraph's Chris Bascombe explained what he must do to make this summer a thing of the past:

As soon as Coutinho fancies playing for LFC again he just needs to say his back feels ok, put on his boots & walk onto training pitch.2017-8-22 11:55:00
Without posturing over whether the club should have expected Barcelona's advances and sold their star, the Reds will count this as a victory, fending off the interest of a world giant and retaining arguably your most valuable asset.
In a saga that worked out better for Liverpool than the one that ended with Luis Suarez joining the Blaugrana in a £70 million deal three years ago, Coutinho now looks set to integrate back into the Reds lineup.
ESPN FC's Liam Twomey gave the view, however, that the player should be somewhat more aggrieved:

I completely understand Liverpool's position but if I were Coutinho right now, I'd be absolutely livid. Denied his dream despite a crazy bid2017-8-22 11:13:04
The five years remaining on Coutinho's contract are all the club really need to point out to make him appreciate where his loyalties lie, Barca having seemingly tried and failed to lure him as their Neymar replacement.
The controversy could continue considering there's more than a week of the transfer window remaining, but Coutinho appears to have avoided any deadline-day uncertainty with an earlier return to the fold.
