Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho is set to sign his deal with Liverpool this week. The 20-year old Brazilian has spent two years with the Nerazzurri, but spent the recent season on loan at La Liga side RCD Espanyol.

Liverpool offered an estimated £8.5 million for Coutinho. He had a warm welcome to European top-flight football when ex-Inter manager Rafael Benitez described him as the “future of Inter Milan”.

Coutinho is bound to become the second signing of Liverpool in this season’s winter transfer window. Ex-Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge signed with the Reds for £12 million and has since impressed with his newfound partnership with striker Luis Suarez.
