Liverpool FC target CoutinhoFURTHER to the breaking news yesterday, Goal.com have reported that a delegation from , led by managing director , has flown out to Italy to thrash out a deal for young Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has apparently identified Coutinho as the missing ‘number 10′ player he believes the squad needs, after losing out on Gylfi Sigurdsson to Tottenham back in July, and Ayre’s sole mission is to come back with Coutinho’s signature whatever it takes.

The 20 year old Brazilian international (capped once so far) has also attracted solid interest from Southampton, where new boss had him on loan last year for La Liga club Espanyol. The midfielder scored 5 goals in 16 games for the Spanish outfit and caught the eye on more than one occasion. However, it is thought Coutinho has already sounded out a senior member of the Liverpool squad, believed to be fellow Brazilian as to how the Reds operate.

A fee of around £8m was rejected yesterday with the club wanting nearer £10 million and if rumours are to be believed, a deal could be completed and announced before the day is done.

Watch this space for any further developments throughout the day.

    I wouldn’t trust Ayre with bringing back anything , he will probably bring back a cheap 2m brazilian instead

    OK i am NOT confident in this guy at all . How many skillful brazilians have been successful in premier league ???

    Not many is answer – who ? Edu ? Juninho (meh), Doriva , Silvinho , Elano ? they dont seem to work in the premier league , im not counting physical players like Gilberto Silva or Lucas

    Coutinho doesnt speak language and is a little injury prone . I would stay well clear
