Coutinho of Inter MilanACCORDING to the , have stepped up their efforts to land Brazilian starlet Philippe from . The Reds reportedly had a bid of €6 million turned down by the Italian giants over the weekend but remain confident of landing the attacking midfielder before the window closes.

Coutinho, who was hailed by former Reds boss Rafa Benitez as the future of Inter during his time in charge at the San Siro, is a versatile attacking midfielder who can also play across the front three. Blessed with a good turn of pace, Coutinho possesses plenty of skill, has great dribbling ability and is strong off either foot.

Inter Milan are said to be ready to let Coutinho go, in a bid to ease the financial burden on the cash strapped club, and the Reds are confident that a deal for the Brazilian can be struck sooner rather than later.

is keen to make Coutinho his second signing of the January transfer window after the Reds welcomed Daniel Sturridge into the Anfield fold a fortnight ago. Reports have surfaced today that Liverpool have made a second bid of €8 million which has been accepted by the Milanese club, these remain unconfirmed at this stage.

Should Coutinho move to Liverpool, that may not signal the end of the Reds January spending, with the Echo confirming the Rodgers is still very interested in taking back to Anfield. With Blackpool still playing hardball over the transfer fee however, the Reds may be forced to wait until the summer to re-sign their former player.

    Word of warning – This guy Coutinho has had a hell of a lot of injury problems for a 20 year old , and has today said he is not interested in leaving Inter . But Inter are trying to get rid

    He doesent want to leave Inter and very few South American players do well in England.To convince Inter to sell Liverpool will have to pay between 12 and 15 million which is alot for a so far largely unproven player.

    I see us becoming like Arsenal of the last 5 or 6 years, a good passing side with no real genuine threat of winning trophies, the manager & owners are to blame. Truth is we have thrown the towel in as a club, there’s no real urgency to achieve anything or go places. Will we ever win the title again in our lifetime? Not with this lot in charge.
