The Brazilian, 19, has been linked with Liverpool after failing to feature regularly at the San Siro since the reign of ex-Reds boss Rafa Benitez.
Speaking to Corriere dello Sport, Coutinho said: “I am grateful to Benitez, he has given me a new positions and many chances.
“Ranieri [current Inter coach] is telling me to remain tranquil and to do during the game the same things I do while I am training.
“The transfer rumours? I can’t decide the future by myself. If it was up to me I would remain forever at Inter.”
Coutinho was brought on during Inter’s 1-1 draw with Trabzonspor on Tuesday night for only his fourth appearance this season.
