Messi, 33, has been heavily linked with a move to PSG when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Angel Di Maria became the latest person connected to PSG to discuss Messi, with coach Mauricio Pochettino, sporting director Leonardo and Neymar having also spoken about the Argentina star in recent months.
After opening the scoring in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Nimes, Di Maria – who is also out of contract at season's end – talked up a potential PSG move for his compatriot.
"I hope to renew with PSG. Play with Messi? Yes, hopefully, I think there are many possibilities," he said.
"I have to be calm, think about my own thing and continue in Paris because I am very happy here."
Barcelona coach Koeman is growing tired of the Ligue 1 giants speaking about his star.
After a stunning comeback to get past Granada in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, Koeman hit out at PSG, who face Barca in the Champions League last 16 beginning this month.

"It is disrespectful that so many people from PSG talk about Messi. They are spicing up the [Champions League] game," he said.
"He is still a Barca player."
