Reds close on Countinho swoop

26 January 2013 11:52
Liverpool are reportedly closing in on the signing of Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho after agreeing a fee with the Serie A outfit. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admitted on Friday he was hoping to bring in one or two new signings and it appears Coutinho could follow Daniel Sturridge into Anfield. The Reds have been in talks with Inter over Coutinho for the last few weeks, but were struggling to agree a deal with the Italian giants for the winger. Southampton have also expressed an interest in Countinho, but it seems Liverpool have now struck a deal with Inter for the 20-year-old. Countinho is thought to favour a move to Liverpool ahead of Southampton and the South American is expected to hold talks with Liverpool over the next few days as Rodgers aims to bring in his second new face of this month's transfer window.
